How to read event logs of a windows 2012 server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I ran the following command from another machine in the same domain.

    Get-EventLog -LogName "Application" -ComputName "Server01"

    I tried using the following command: But it says "Cannot open log Application on machine Server01. Windows has not provided an error code.

    I want to dump entire logs under "Application" into  some file.

    Any suggestions please

    thank you
