Windows event viewer alert

Hi,

I am using Hyperic HQ 3.0. can it be configured to monitor the windows 2003 application event errors (event viewer) without additional plug-in?

I was trying to specify the event log (.evt file) location in the "indicator", but it doesn't seem to work as expected. I cannot find in the HQ 3.0 documentation as well

Please assist.

thx

Hi,

did you find the setup of event logging in the Configuration Properties of you Windows platform (Resources -> Browse -> Inventory -> Configuration Properties) ?
Could you attach a screenshot of the current settings ?

as the screen shot attached, I did have those configured, but no alert generated. Supposedly the windows event logs are located under c:\windows\system32\config\appevent.evt, it 's always been locked by windows system process.

any idea?
