Running windows server 2008 R2. My application and system logs are not being generated in event viewer. I have verified that logging is enabled. Also, logs are generating for the security and other logs.

I followed these instructions to verify the permissions and they are correct.


Restore the default permissions on %SystemRoot%\System32\winevt\logs.

Authenticated user - List folder/read data, Read attributes, Read Extended attributes, Read permissions
Administrators - Full control
SYSTEM - Full control
EventLog - Full control71256

Any other ideas why only the Application and System logs are not generating anything?

The issue with only your application or for all ?

 I mean other events logs are properly written in system and application section ?

if its for all then run following command and verify

"Open Command prompt with Run As admin"


netsh winsock reset

This issue can be  occur if event logs are corrupt.

I restarted the server and poof everything started working. Looks like it just needed a reboot in order for the new permission changes to take affect.
