How to Import Multiple Windows Monitoring Log Enablement Package (LEP) via PowerShell Script

1.     In order to import Log Enablement Package for Windows Server 2003 we need to use the Logman remote

        functionality and execute it on a Windows Server 2008 or later operating system. The

        PowerShell script ImportLEPRemotely.PS1 allows for the importing of Windows Server 2003 and later

        Log Enablement Package but must be ran from a Windows Server 2008 or later machine. This script contains

        a ServerList file which allows for specific or global targeting of servers on the network.

        The ServerList file contains two sections. The first is called [All_Servers], which is a list of

        Log Enablement Package that will be imported on all servers. The second section is called [Specific _Servers]

        and it lists the Log Enablement Package to be applied to defined servers.








                       Server1 = AD_AddressBook_Alerts;  AD_AsychronousThreadQueue_Alerts

                       Server2  = AD_AddressBook_Alerts;  AD_AsychronousThreadQueue_Alerts

                       Server3 = SQLServer_Workload_Alerts; SQLServer_DataAccess_Alerts


                       Once you have configured your list add the ImportLEPRemotely.PS1 file and all relevant

                       Log Enablement Package files to the same directory.


2.    Open PowerShell and run the script. If Successful all Log Enablement Package on the remote machines should

       be imported.

       If you get an Access denied error you may need to configure the firewall on these remote servers.

       This can easily be done thru GPO.
