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;
        }
    }
}
