This step-by-step article describes how to create custom events
. You can create custom events in an event log by using the Eventcreate utility. This can be useful as a diagnostic tool in scripts when you record an error or event directly into the logs without using VBScript or another language to log the event.
The Eventcreate utility
Eventcreate is a command-line utility that you can start at a command prompt or by clicking Start and then typing in the Run dialog box. The following switches are available for the command:
* /s computer
Specifies the name or IP address of a remote computer with which to log the event. The default computer is the local computer.
* /u domain\user
Runs the command with the permissions of the specified user. The default user is the current user.
* /p password
Specifies the password of the user account that is specified in the /u parameter.
Specifies the name of the log where the event will be created. Only APPLICATION or SYSTEM are permitted.
* /so source name
Specifies the source name that is generating the event, and this can be any string, but is typically the program.
Specifies the type of event to create. The valid event types are ERROR, WARNING, and INFORMATION.
* /id EventID
Specifies the event ID for the event. This must be an integer between 1 and 1000. IDs do not have to be unique, and it is a good idea to use them to record an identifiable error number such as the exit code from a program.
* /d description
Specifies the description to use for the newly-created event. Use quotation marks (") to specify a multi-word string.
Displays help at the command prompt.
NOTE: You must supply values for the /t, /id and /d options, and another value for the /l or /so option.Deepak, if this helps please login to Mark As Answer. | Alert Moderator
