I've created some User Defined Data Collector Sets and I can't get them to write to the event log even though I have checked the box.  I'm trying to so some simple stuff that I've done on Windows 2003 server.  If the processor time is gt 5% write an event to the log and send me an email.

Would somebody clue me in on what I need to do to make this work?  Let me know if you need additional info.

Vijay - thanks for the link. I don't have any Evt ID's 1016 in the Event logs.  So I don't have any details on why the task failed.  Is there someplace else I can look for a log file?

Thanks
