I have a web service that I want to write to a custom log.

I have created the log on the server and created the sources for it.

It feels like a permissions issue, but I cant get any info back from the server to tell me what I am doing wrong.  Can anyone point me in the right direction on this?  This works like a charm on my dev machine.

Here is the full class code...
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.IO;
using System.Diagnostics;
using My.Models;

namespace MyClass
{
    public class ServiceLogger
    {
        public class LogObject
        {
            public DateTime ExecuteTime { get; set; }
            public DateTime EndTime { get; set; }
            public String ServiceCall { get; set; }
            public String Status { get; set; }
            public TimeSpan Span
            {
                get
                {
                    DateTime starttime = ExecuteTime;
                    DateTime endtime = EndTime;
                    return endtime.Subtract(starttime);
                }
            }
            public String StackTrace { get; set; }
        }

        public static void WriteLog(LogObject l)
        {
            string logMsg = CreateLogMessage(l);

            EventLog eLog = GetLog();

            EventLogEntryType eType = new EventLogEntryType();
            switch (l.Status)
            {
                case "ERROR":
                    eType = EventLogEntryType.Error;
                    break;
                case "SUCCESS":
                    eType = EventLogEntryType.SuccessAudit;
                    break;
                default:
                    eType = EventLogEntryType.Information;
                    break;
            }

            eLog.WriteEntry(logMsg, eType, 1000, 0);
        }

        public static EventLog GetLog()
        {
            if (!EventLog.SourceExists("MySource"))
            {
                EventLog.CreateEventSource("MyService", "MySource");
            }

            EventLog eLog = new EventLog("MyService", ".", "MySource");
            return eLog;
        }

        public static string CreateLogMessage(LogObject l)
        {
            string logMsg = string.Empty;
            logMsg = "Status:  " + l.Status + "\r\n";
            logMsg += "Time Span:  " + l.Span.ToString() + "\r\n";
            logMsg += "Start Time: " + l.ExecuteTime.ToString() + "\r\n";
            logMsg += "End Time:  " + l.EndTime.ToString() + "\r\n";
            logMsg += "Service Called:  " + l.ServiceCall + "\r\n\n";

            logMsg += "Stack Trace:  " + l.StackTrace + "\r\n";


            return logMsg;
        }
    }
}

If server if windows server 2003 or 2008 then you might have this issue as Eventlog need permission

Go through this article it will let you know if permission is that problem.
