Unless at some point you actually want to examine your logs.
Even a moderately busy production server will produce so much crap from
that printer that it would be a nightmare to examine, if you had any
sort of incident. Not to mention all that wasted paper.


I know that you can dump event logs to a file, I seem to recall it being
scriptable too, although scripting the actual burning may be the issue
here.
However most good server versions of backup software will let you dump
your event logs to their backup medium, which could be a CD-R.

If an incident does occur, event logs aren't a terribly great source of
information, you'd be much better off paying attention to your IDS/IPS
system.
