    Dacruz: Is there a place in group policy in which you can define who can read the
    Dacruz: security logs? In our shop, we have domain controllers at sites in which the
    Dacruz: IT staffs are not domain admins but still need to be able to see the
    Dacruz: security logs to look for account lockouts.

    Christophe,
    Remember that DumpEL is a part of the Resource Kit which is a separate CD.
    I believe that, in the past, one had to buy the ResKit separately.

    Dacruz,
    Assuming that the C:\ drive is not FAT (which I've seen) but NTFS,
    setting the permissions on that directory will not allow a user to
    view the logs via the EventViewer.

    Thanks
