  • Server 2003 and Event Log Error

    Hello

    I have a Server 2003, logged on as administrator account or administrator privilege, Event Viewer allows Save then Clear, but not Clear and save.

    From the server,
    Event Viewer
    Select Application
    Clear All Events
    Do you want to save “Application” before clearing?
    Yes
    Save “Application” As
    Message “Clearing the event log failed because of the following error:” Access is denied

    However, From the server,
    Event Viewer
    Select Application
    Save log file as
    Save
    Then Clear

    All worked well for years, then a few weeks ago, cannot save from Clear all and save, have to Save first, then clear.

    Thanks

    B.

    Maybe the log is not full? Server only to the auto save and clear only IF the log is reached to its specified size.

    on the application log, go to properties.. confirm that it is still specified as "Archive the log when full, do not overwrite events"
