If a Windows Network machine has security activated, you require an authentication account to access it. Otherwise, if authentication is not required, you can also access a Windows Network log from the Local log type page (see Adding a Local Log).

Note: Windows Network logs are only available when Xpolog Center is installed on a Windows machine. 
It is highly recommended to save a user on the XpoLog Service (Windows Services -> XpoLog Center Service -> Properties -> Log On tab). Once a user is applied on the XpoLog service it is possible to add remote Windows logs using type 'local' by providing a UNC path (\\hostname\dir_name\). Example: \\qaserver\c$\Log Files\log.log.

To add a Windows Network log to XpoLog:
  1. In Connection Details, select the Windows Authentication account required to connect to the log, or click the new link to add an account  to the system (see Address Book).
    Note: If you do not have any Windows authentication accounts defined in XpoLog, the Add Windows Authentication account  page is presented automatically.
    Recommended: It is recommended to configure a service account (on the XpoLog Service in the Windows Services Panel) with the required permissions to read logs from remote machines in the network. Then all logs, local or any other machine in the network, can be defined as Local log type page (see Adding a Local Log).
  2. In Log Path, type the path to the log's location 
    lick Browse to open the System Files Browser of the Windows Network machine that you connected to, expand the folders to get to the desired log, and then click Select to display the log location in Log Path.
  3. Optionally, append to the log path a name pattern to capture multiple files from the same log. (For pattern syntax, see XpoLog Patterns Language.)
  4. Optionally, define advanced settings for the Windows Network log – Files Attributes, Files Filters, and/or Regional Settings (see Configuring Advanced Log Settings).
  5. Click either of the following buttons:
    Save – XpoLog applies an automated pattern on the incoming log, and the Log Viewer opens displaying the parsed records of the new log. The log name is displayed in the left pane in its selected location under Folders and Logs. If you put in the log path a {string} pattern, the various files of the log appear in the left pane. Otherwise, only one file appears. You can perform regular actions on this log.
    Next – The Patterns administration screen opens. Apply patterns on the log data and save the log in XpoLog (see Applying Patterns on the Log).
