Eventlogs Not Being Set Correctly (all Windows OSes) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I selected Windows Server > Server Virtualization because I found zero topics that are remotely related to eventlog/server configuration issues. Please move if there is a more fitting category and sub-category. Thank you.

    We have a provisioning tool in our environment which I created a job for to set the Windows Eventlogs for Application, Security, and System to 196mb (200704 decimal, 31000 hex). That can be seen to be true that the change worked while looking in the EventViewer GUI.

    But when viewing it with Powershell it believes it is set to only 196mb.If I set that value to 205520896 (if it were calculating MB from bytes), Powershell shows it to be 20MB (20,070K), but then the GUI shows ~20GB (20552089 (in KB)).

    **I have screenshots to attach, but states I cannot do so until account is verified**
