Event Log Policy ADM

I created an .adm file that helped me to manage the EventLog policies without using custom scripts but using a domain GPO.

Basically my needings were:
- set a limited value for the event log size
- archive and clear event log automatically
- all the log file shouldn't be archived in the system partition to avoid disk full problem

Two knowledge base article explained be how to do it:

Daniel Petri implemented and ADM using the KB 312571, I modified it appling KB 216169 registry keys configuration.

Important: After you import the ADM, you must open Group Policy Editor and disable a specific view filtering option:
Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System - > Event Viewer
Right Click -> View -> Filtering -> Remove flag from "Only show policy settings that can be fully managed"
