Windows Event Log

The action "Windows Event Log" allows you to create entries in the Windows Event Log. This can be done on the local or a remote computer. Please note that you must have enough rights to create entries in ServerSentinel. It is recommended that you set the same rights for ServerSentinel as for the service. Then you can be sure that when an action works by ServerSentinel, then it will work in the service.
