OK, I've been avoiding this for a while, but need to get to it. \:\)

I have about 30 Windows 2008 R2 servers. I am in a security group at the domain level that is part of the local administrators group for each but I am not a domain admin. I need to come up with a mechanism to backup the security log to long term storage. The long term storage is an irix system. I have SSH Tectia Client installed on each Windows server and I have set up SSH so that I can scp to the long term storage.

I wrote a short script to just test backing up the security log. Just:

If BackupEventLog("security", $strFile)
   ? @SERROR

produces "A required privilege is not held by the client." I double checked and the security group that I am in is in the administrator's group. Any suggestions?

Quick note: I can backup the events from the computer management console.
