Windows 2008 R2 64 clearing all event logs via powershell

Filed under: MS — raj2796 @ 11:34 am

Quick post – some of my virtual servers amassed massive event logs that were using up valuable space, a quick way to clear all event logs on the server from  powershell is to use the command:

wevtutil el | foreach { wevtutil cl $_ }

  1. Simple but great combination of wevutil and powershell, thanks!
