DBAs - Do you increase the Log Size of your Event Viewer?

Last updated by ChristianMWaite over 4 years ago.See history

Change the defaults from 20480KB to 64000KB and Overwrite as needed. This will allow the users to view Security audits and errors much further into the past with a minimal increase in space - and it will never bloat your server.
