How to configure event log replication in Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003 cluster servers


View products that this article applies to.

Summary

By default, when Clustering is installed on Windows 2000 Advanced Server or Windows 2000 Datacenter servers, events that are logged in the event log of one node in the cluster are also shown in the event log of the other nodes. If appropriate, this feature, known as Event Log Replication, can be disabled for the entire cluster or on a per-node basis. You can configure the EnableEventLogReplication property by using the Cluster.exe command-line tool.

Using the Cluster.exe Command-line Tool

  • To disable the replication of event logs for the entire cluster, use the following syntax:
    cluster /prop EnableEventLogReplication=0
  • To enable the replication of the event log, use this command:
    cluster /prop EnableEventLogReplication=1
  • To disable the replication of event logs from a single node of the cluster, use the following syntax:
    cluster name of node /prop EnableEventLogReplication=0
    Replace name of node with the computer name of that node.

  • To enable replication from a particular node use the following syntax:
    cluster name of node /prop EnableEventLogReplication=1
    Replace name of node with the computer name of that node.

Note that by disabling the replication at a specific node, replication of events from that node to other nodes is disabled. Other nodes that have the EnableEventLogReplication property turned on still replicate to that node. Note that this only replicates the System, Application and Security event logs.
