Windows 2000 Server/AD: Security Events not written to Event Log

Posted on 2004-11-17

Have discovered that no events have been written to the Security Event logs on either of the Domain Controllers on my network.  All other logs are working fine (so I don't think it's a problem with the eventlog service), all logs are set to "Overwrite As Needed" (so it's not because the file is full) and when I archived the existing entries and purged the Security Log, a security event was recorded for that action (but sadly for nothing since then).

Anyone seen anything like this before?

    Is auditing enable in the Domain Controller Security policy?  Has this always been the issue, or has it just started.  I'm assuming it just started because you purged old data

    I'd already combed through Group Policy and Domain Security Policy - I forgot about that one
