Kiwi Syslog As A Service


You may or may not know that if you install Kiwi as an application and not as a service, Kiwi will not receive syslogs when there is no one logged into the server or workstation.

Here is the fix using Windows Powershell:

sc.exe create KiwiSyslog start=auto binPath= “C:\Program Files (x86)\Syslogd\syslogd.exe

This will create a Windows Service called "KiwiSyslog", which specifies a service that starts automatically,  starts each time the computer is restarted and runs even if no one logs on to the computer.

Hope this helps!
