Increase Application Event Log File Size


Running Windows Server 2012 R2.

I'm trying to increase the Application Event Log size from the default of 32768 KB to 2097152 KB.  When I use the Event Viewer GUI, I get the message:

... maximum log size specified is not valid.  It is too large or too small ...

So I've tried using the command prompt:

wevtutil set-log Application /MS:2147483648

And via powershell:

limit-eventlog -logname Application -maximumsize 2097152Kb

Both to no effect as it reverts back to 32768 KB.  My limited Google skills hasn't turned up anything so far.

Any help would be much appreciated.
