The event logging service encountered an error while processing an incoming event published from Microsoft-Windows-Security-Auditing.

I am getting the following error:

I can't get any entries in the security log.  Thanks.

This issue is typically caused by an invalid registry value in the Restore subkey for the DFSR service. Look at:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Dfsr\Restore.

There will be a sub key named year-date-time the restore was done with two values. One of those

values will be the network name that was used to perform the remote restore.

- Backup and delete the restore subkey

- Restart DFSR (if it won't stop, restart machine).

- After the reg value is removed the service start and stop will be normal

I finally figured it out.  By default security logging is not turned on in a Windows 2008 server environment.  I had to create a local/domain policy to turn on auditing.  After doing this all the information started to flow.
