  • critical Event ID monitoring report

    Hi Everyone,

    How do you monitor these event ID across your domain ?

    for example here are some of the list that needs to be monitored:

    Code:
    Application:
    1002 Application Hang
    1000 Application Error
    
    Hardware Related:
    7, 9, 11, 51, 52, 55 Potential HD related issue 
    1053 Servers too hot. Sometimes our Air conditioning breaks. 
    
    Security Log:
    529 Logon Failure - Unknown user name or bad password
    530 Logon Failure - Account logon time restriction violation
    531 Logon Failure - Account currently disabled
    532 Logon Failure - The specified user account has expired
    533 Logon Failure - User not allowed to logon at this computer
    534 Logon Failure - The user has not been granted  the requested logon type at this machine
    535 Logon Failure - The specified accountís password has expired
    539 Logon Failure - Account locked out
    
    On the Domain Controller:
    675 on a domain controller indicates a failed initial attempt to logon via Kerberos at a workstation with a domain account usually due to a bad password but the failure code indicates exactly why authentication failed
    642 indicates a change to the specified user account such as a reset password or a disabled account being re-enabled. The eventís description specifies the type of change.
    632, 636, 660 - All 3 events indicate the specified user was added to the specified group. Group scopes Global, Local and Universal correspond to the 3 event IDs
    624 - New user account was created.
    644 - Specified user account was locked out after repeated logon failures
    517 - The specified user cleared the security log.
    can anyone give me suggestion or share the Powershell script to email / report this please ?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Generally such kind of monitoring is made by using mom/scom or similar monitoring tools. However if you running windows server 2008 then you can use event viewer and scheduler to triggered you an email whenever an alert is logged.
    Right click on the event you want to monitor select > Attach task to this event.. follow reset of the instructions

    you can either choose run take action(create a custom bat script that send email using blat or standalone msging tool) or send email (for this you need exchange server or smtp relay box)

    Also you need to conifgure the task to run whether user is logged on or not.

    Additional if you want to configure rest of the event but they haven't logged on you can try exporting existing event based task into an xml file then modify it and then again import it.
    PS: Theorotically it seems to work however I haven't test this method.
    Thanks & Regards

        Hi,

        There are many monitoring system available out in the market. SCOM is one of them. You need to setup up SCOM 2007 R2 Server then push the Agents on what systems you need to monitor.
        Then you need to configure rules/alert for monitoring to work.

        The events that you mentioned in the post are mostly (except hardware and application hang and crash) be logged on DC and PDC roles so essentially you need to monitor.
        Thanks & Regards

          Cool, so only the hardware and application crash that needs to be monitored.
          since b defaults those security event is logged by DC (Infrastructure master ?)

          Thanks man.

            Hi,

            It will be the Domain Controller. PDC role checks for bad password count, account locks, threshold, password policy so you can see those events logging on PDC emulator role. DC will provide authentication then. DC can hold PDC role as well.
            Thanks & Regards
