Collect MSI Logs for Video Issues on Jabber

The word "syslog" remains from the original Unix version. In Windows, this means "log to the event log".

Note: The capitalization must match the example and the backslashes need to be doubled because of the double quotes.

When the msi.ini file is changed, restart the Cisco Media Services Interface service in order to restart msid.exe.
