The security log typically doesnt generate anything unless you turn auditing on.

Event ID 517 only occurs when someone clears the Security Event log.

When you say doesn't generate any events, do you mean all events or just 517?  If its not logging any events at all, have you tried deleting the log file itself and recreating it?

Default location: \WINNT\System32\config\SecEvent.Evt

Hi there.I got it. Domain Controler Policy Auditing was on, but Local wasn't. I checked "No Override" under Default Domain Controler Policy Options and so far so good.Thanks again
