    How can i log who accesses to the eventviewer ? say, user 1 open eventviewer to see a particular logs (security, app, systel,..) and i want an eventid to be generated in the eventlog that says user 1 has accesses to the eventlog.
    I try to enable audit on privilege success and put sacl in system drive:\Windows\System32\Winevt\Logs but all i have is users1 open mmc.exe instaead of eventviwer.exe.

      I don’t have Win 2008 R2, only worked with 2003. Anyway, I never needed user event viewer access logs. You should ask this kind of question in 2008 server forums.
