Is there any way to prevent the logging of startup failures of a certain service to system event log?

I don't see any, but maybe anyone knows. Filtering is no solution.

It's based upon the design of the application...if it faults, it's designed to report that fault to the event log.
So the direct answer is "no", but why not correct the problem?  Could it be that the order in the startup needs to be changed?
McKnifeAuthor Commented:
"It's based upon the design of the application" - This is something I didn't know, so theoretically there could be services that fail and would never report to the event log?
more details: we use an ident daemon to authenticate users that have access to the proxy server. That old service identd does its job, but occasionally reports failures, although it is always running and internet access works. Since we do event log monitoring, I get an e-mail for every failure. I am tempted to install a different ident daemon, that should solve it.
Thanks for the info
"so theoretically there could be services that fail and would never report to the event log?"

"Theoretically", it's possible - but not probable...  You've got a sucky coder if that's the case... ;)
