    SUMMARY
    This step-by-step article describes how to use the Event Log Query Tool (Elogdmp.exe) to display event log information in Microsoft Windows 2000.

    Elogdmp is available in the Windows 2000 Resource Kit. It is a command-line tool that you can use to display information from the Event Viewer logs of a local or remote Windows 2000-based computer. This tool "dumps" the contents of the log in comma-delimited format to the screen or to a file. You can then search the output to find and to view the information that you want. The information that Elogdmp displays include the following:
    Date
    Time
    Source
    Type
    Category
    Event ID
    User
    Computer
    Any user on the network can use Elogdmp to view the contents of the Application log on any remote computer on the network. To view the contents of the System or Security log on a remote computer, you must be a member of the Domain Administrators or Administrators group on that computer.

    Overview of Elogdmp
    Elogdmp uses the following syntax:
    elogdmp ComputerName EventLog

    You can use the following parameters with Elogdmp:
    ComputerName: Use this parameter to specify the name of the computer whose event logs you want to query.
    EventLog: Use this parameter to specify the event log that you want to display, where EventLog is Application, Security, System, DNS Server, Directory Service, or File Replication Service.

    NOTE: The DNS Server log is available only on DNS servers, and the Directory Service and File Replication Service logs are available only on domain controllers.

    Examples
    To display the contents of the Application log on a computer named Server1, type the following line at the command prompt, and then press ENTER:
    elogdmp server1 application

    NOTE: If the name of the log that you want to view contains a space, enclose the name of the log with quotation marks ("").

    The contents of the Application log of Server1 are displayed in comma-delimited format in the Command Prompt window.
    To display the contents of the DNS Server log on a computer named Server2 and to redirect the output to a file named Dnslog.txt, in the E:\Logs folder, type the following line at the command prompt, and then press ENTER:
    elogdmp server2 DNS Server > e:\logs\dnslog.txt

    NOTE: If the name of the log that you want to view contains a space, enclose the name of the log with quotation marks ("").

    The contents of the DNS Server log of Server2 are written to the E:\Logs\Dnslog.txt file in comma-delimited format.
