Disable Event Log Replication in all Cluster Nodes


A few days ago I had to analyse a problem in a cluster and I needed to disabled Log replication between all the nodes of the cluster.

If the EnableEventLogReplication registry entry is set to 1, the cluster node replicates events in the event log to all other nodes in the cluster. Tools that monitor multiple servers, report a single event multiple times, one time from each node. If you use automated monitoring, it is recommended that you disable event log replication on cluster nodes.

To disable event log replication on all nodes of a cluster

Click Start, click Run, and then type

cluster /prop EnableEventLogReplication=0

To disable event log replication on a single cluster node

Click Start, click Run, and then type

Cluster <name of node to disable> /prop EnableEventLogReplication=0

The registry key can be found here, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Cluster\Nodes\”cluster node”\EnableEventLogReplication

Hope that this information can be useful.
