How to create an event in the event log

If you need to create an event in the event viewer when scripting you can use this:

eventcreate /t error /id 100 /l application /d “Create event in application log”
eventcreate /t information /id 1000 /so winmgmt /d “Create event in WinMgmt source”
eventcreate /t error /id 2001 /so winword /l application /d “new src Winword in application log”
eventcreate /s server /t error /id 100 /l application /d “Remote machine without user credentials”
eventcreate /s server /u user /p password /id 100 /t error /l application /d “Remote machine with user credentials”
eventcreate /s server1 /s server2 /u user /p password /id 100 /t error /so winmgmt /d “Creating events on Multiple remote machines”
eventcreate /s server /u user /id 100 /t warning /so winmgmt /d “Remote machine with partial user credentials”
