Hi Experts,

We have a SBS 2003 server that all of a sudden the application logs are not viewable.
It is an SBS 2003 server running AD, DHCP, DNS, Exchange, Backup, and File.

I have attached a screen grab of this issue.

Look forward to reading your comment

The server was a remote server and unable to be infront of it caused the above KB artical to be of no use, but it should do the trick
