Exercise 1 - Enable Event Log Forwarding

Event Viewer is the repository of system generated logs in Windows. System logs indicate information about operating system events like a Windows restart. Security logs contain information about logon events of users and operating system services. Application logs hold information about the status of Windows services like User Profile Services and others.

Event forwarding is a feature that will provide convenience for Windows administrators because a dedicated computer can be designated as a central collection point of event logs coming from other computes.

In this exercise, you will learn how to set up event log forwarding between devices in a Windows domain.
