In the registry at: HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\services\eventlog

there will be a Maxsize and retention value for each of the 3 logs.

Subject: Where would the changes be saved?

When you make a change to a windows 2000 servers auditing and log
rotation where is that info stored? I have looked all through the
registry and searched all over the HDD and found nothing but a few
.dll's and .inf files. If I make changes to the .inf files directly it
does not affect the policy. This is for a machine that is standalone or
in an NT4 domain so pushing it out is not an option. Any advice
welcome. Thanks
