I could not access the Security event log on our domain controller with the domain administrator account. I tried a bunch of fixes and verified settings but still did not work. One suggestion was stopping the event log service, deleting the log (since I couldn't clear it either), and then restarting the service. I did this but the event log won't recreate. Turns out it's not in the recycle bin either. I've restarted as well, but no luck.
Any ideas? Administrators have access to the logs and it works fine for application and system logs. And it works fine on domain members, just not the single DC (need another one, I know).
