    As long as you have administrative rights on the box, you can view the event
    viewer remotely. When you open the event viewer it has a folder which says
    "Event Viewer (local)" You can right click on this and choose "Connect to
    another computer..." which allows you to view/manage the event logs
    remotely.

    As you only have 30 machines to manage, I would probably skip using the
    event viewer and build yourself a custom MMC console with one event viewer
    for each machine, so you can just open one thing up and see all of the
    machines at once.

    I am currently administering over 10 server(advanced) and 20 workstation
    (pro), The management of event/security/application log has become
    unbeareable,so im looking for a centralized management solution were the
    informatin would be gather from server/workstation to a specific server, so
    the question is: Anyone aware of such a software
    that could do the job ? commercial or freeware, I basically just want to
    avoid having to walk over to check them manually.

    also if anyone who has faced this situation is willing to share
    their knowledge on the subject...

    Thanks
