    I'm new to windows 2008 server. I'd like to clear 2008 events as it is
    easier to track if there are events that are current however I can't figure
    out how to clear the log.

  2. Hello boe,

    Like all other event viewers, rightclick the log you will clear and choose
    the option.

    Best regards

    Thanks - if you go to roles under server manager. It lists any events for
    specific roles. E.G. Active Directory. It has events. Even if I clear
    all the logs for apps, security etc - it still lists events under ad. I
    can't find a place to clear my ad event log.

    PS - I can HIDE events e.g. AD, Print and other roles - but I want to clear
    the events.

  5. Hello boe,

    If i clear my "Directory services" log under "Applications and services Logs",
    also the entries under Active directory domain services are deleted. Maybe
    you are not expanding all possible views?

    Best regards
