logon to any windows server and open Computer Management Console (Start ->
Run -> compmgmt.msc and click OK). On the Computer Management (Local) right
click and select connect to another computer and enter the domain controller
name. Once you are connected you can drill down to event log and save logs
to different location, empty them, reserve more space for logs etc...
