How to check the NPS logs in the Event Viewer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I configured the Log File Properties in Accounting in NPS server as the following screenshots. And I checked there has indeed been a NPS log file. However, the content of the log file is not friendly to read in the notepad. May I check the NPS log in the Event Viewer? Thanks.

  • Hi Jeremy,

    Thanks for your reply. However, there does be a way to check the logs in the Event Viewer UI and I already found it by myself. It's very simple. Open the Server Manager, expand Roles node, and then click Network Policy and Access Services node. The NPS event logs of the last 24 hours will be displayed in the Summary area of the right side. We can click Go to Event Viewer, then we can see where it is! Anyway, thanks as well.

  • Hi,


    For the accounting logs of authentication, we cannot check it via Event Viewer. There is no UI we can check the accounting information, no matter we choose to use SQL server logging or logging locally. For SQL server logging, we need to understand SQL scripting to cerates reposts. It will be better than check it via notepad.
