Can I suppress a specific Event Log ID or message type?  Win2kServer

Posted on 2007-03-20

I have a server that is being innundated with type 1010 events.  they are filling up the log every second.  I am not interested in resolving that issue at the moment (that's a side discussion).

I would like to suppress the messages so that I can see what other events are hitting the log.

Is there any way to selectively tell the OS to 'skip' logging a particular event?

Windows 2000 server running Exchange 2000.

If the error is from exchange, you can disable exchange log, but if it is from windows you can not disable it. In fact, you would like to fix the problem to stop the error message. If the event is from the terminal service license, you can read the following article to troubleshoot it:

No, actually it's a perf error - I've been around the maypole with this one.  I've disabled logging on all elements, even turned off perf service.

I am not sure if you try these steps yet. However, if you didn't, give it a shot:

1. Use Regedt32 to add the EventLogLevel value with a Reg_Dword value of 0 to the following value to the registry:      "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\PerfLib\"
2. Right click My Computer and select Manage.
3. Expand out the list under Services and Applications.
4. Right click the WMI Control, and select Properties.
5. Choose the Logging tab and set the Logging level to Disabled, then click OK to close the WMI Properties.
6. Select Services, right click the Windows Management Instrumentation service, and then restart the service".

Did you try to disable performance counter? Try the following procedure:

The procedure that I gave you earlier is for disable loggin service for perflib. Make sure you follow step one create a registry key named EventLogLevel and set value to 0. Value 0 = no loggin this service. If you are sure to create this registry value, you can try to restart your server (once it's allowed) and let me know if it still loggin the error.
