Clearing logs with Windows Event Viewer

Server and Cluster Administration Guide for Hitachi NAS Platform

Part Number

The Windows Event Viewer utility allows clearing (deleting) events related to specific categories, such as 'system' or 'security.’

On a Windows server, when an administrator clears a particular category of events, only events in that category are deleted.

For the NAS server, however, when managing the NAS server event log using the Windows Event Viewer, you cannot delete only a particular category of events. If you try to clear only security or system event entries from the log, you actually clear all events (security and system) from the NAS server’s event log.
