I have a windows 2k server. Absolutely nothing is going to the event log for any areas. Event logging is turned on in Services.

Where do I need to look to see if someone has turned it off?

What can I check to turn it back on?

Thanks for the help.

Had already checked that. I is running.

I think I may have found the problem. There may be a bug. I found a web page that said to up the log size a little and clear the logs. Even though nothing at all was showing in the logs. I did that and rebooted. Logging started again.
