  • using xp's eventquery.vbs on win2k server... need a little a

    Hello,

    I recently found that the eventquery.vbs script which comes with XP and
    win2003 server could save me a ton of time sifting through logs.. I
    figured out how to get it to work (mostly) on win2k by doing the
    following:

    This script does not exist in windows2000 (server) but can be made to
    work by doing the following:

    1. Copy eventquery.vbs from XP or win2003server to c:\winnt\system32\
    2. Copy CMDLIB.wsc from xp or win2003server to c:\winnt\system32\
    3. Register CMDLIB.wsc with the windows 2000 machine by doing the
    following at a command prompt:
    regsvr32 c:\winnt\system32\CMDLIB.wsc /s

    On my test instance (win2k server), I was able to query the security
    event log with no troubles. I then did the above procedure on my win2k
    domain controller. I can query all logs accept the security log (which
    is the one I most want to query). Here is the error I get when running
    cscript c:\winnt\system32\eventquery.vbs /l security /v on my win2k
    domain controller:

    ERROR: Unable to execute the query for the 'security' log

    I can use the /s computername switch to query the security log on a
    domain client (xp or win2ksp4) from the domain controller with no
    problem. I also attempted to run the eventquery.vbs script from one of
    my XP domain clients with the /s domaincontroller and it to failed with
    the same error message.

    I CAN see the security log using the event viewer on the domain
    controller.

    Can anyone shed light on this?

    thanks,
