Auditing: Event Log size for System log must be at least 32768 KB

4decda12-e17d-45d8-bb5e-53f26706acbf

Inadequate log size will cause the log to fill up quickly. This may prevent audit events from being recorded properly and require frequent attention by administrative personnel.

Remediation

To fix this configure the policy value for Computer Configuration >> Administrative Templates >> Windows Components >> Event Log Service >> System >> "Specify the maximum log file size (KB)" to "Enabled" with a "Maximum Log Size (KB)" of "32768" or greater.
