Hi all,

An interesting issue arose for me today. We have a particular event being logged as a wanring on one system while on all other systems the same event is being classified as information. As a result we recieve a message in our monitoring environment for this event on only the machine where the event is classified as a warning.

The event is exactly the same and the software version are all the same also. Only the error type is different. I was wondering if anyone knew or had any links to how this classification is decided on. I would have thought that this was written into the code of the program generating the event however this issue makes me think I am missing something.

Thanks in advance.

The classification is sent to the event log from the program, windows doesn't decide it.
Well, not totally true, if the application ommits the type, it default to "Information". So I bet you are seing one with Information and another one with the proper type.
Is the eventID also the same in both?

What application is this? I bet it's a little "feature" in their code ;)

That's what I was thinking. Thanks for clarifying. I'm going to re-install the software component on this particular box.
