Some month ago I created a PowerShell Event Creator and quite some people liked what I did ;-) Now Ken has made some great additions to this PS script. How cool is that?

This are the additions he made:

  1. Modification so that you can log events in any Event Log using the Source to look up which log to use
  2. Check added to ask if the user wants to create the missing Source in the Application log rather than just creating it, never know when you will msispell a source ;-)
  3. Modified the question for description to also say or Params/Param[1].

I've tested it and and I like it.

You can download the new PowerShell Event Creator here.

Thanks Ken for making this PowerShell Event Creator script better!

  • Hi Bob,

  • i think bob is referring to events like a like logon event in the security log of a domain controller. it has a bunch of parameters. target username, target sid, target domain, logon domain, logon username, logon type, etc, etc. does this script allow us to recreate those kinds of events so we can test our scom event rules and events that speficy parameters?
