Error Event ID 318 in W2k3 R2 Event Viewer/Application and SQLSERVERAGENT LOG: Unable to read local eventlog (reason: The parameter is incorrect)
Posted on 2006-11-07
I have MS Server 2003 R2 Standard running MS SQL 2005 Standard for an application called CityView Municipal software. In the Windows Event Viewer -> Application log, it reports numerous Alert Engine Error Events: ID 318 for SQLSERVERAGENT. When I look this up, it references issues with Dr. Watson which I don't find on the server. Then when I examine the log files for alerts in SQL 2005 SQLSERVERAGENT, it is filled with: "[LOG] Unable to read local eventlog (reason: The parameter is incorrect)". ANY assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
