After ADPREP - no access to event viewer !
Posted on 2004-10-27
I've just DCPROMOed a newly cleaned up Windows 2003 into my existing 2000 domain.
For those that know, you have to run ADPREP /forestprep and /domainprep which went well.
Not sure if this is related, but this morning, I cannot view any of the Event Logs (except System) on the machine - I am using the Domain Administrator account.
I'm a little concerned - but I can actually view the events using DAMEWARE tools (3rd party networking tools) from my local machine ... which is perhaps even odder !
I've tried using a MMC from another DC to view them and have the same issue.
The AD itself seems fine and usable from the Windows 2003 machine.
I'm a bit a baffled.
Any ideas ?
