Event subscription is one of the most exciting features in Windows Server 2008 and it is very easy to set up. In the Subscription folder of Event Viewer, with a few mouse clicks and no coding, one can easily configure an event subscription to subscribe targeted events from remote computers. Should an automated process be needed upon the arrival of a subscribed event at a collecting computer, we can attach a Windows task to that particular event such that follow-up actions like emailing alerts or starting a workflow in SharePoint can be triggered automatically. This screencast also discussed the advanced settings including the service account employment and event delivery optimizations of an event subscription configuration. The screen flow is available for reference here. For better viewing, use full screen mode to view the following screencast.
