I need help in getting my Application Logs to show up in Windows Event Viewer.  For some reason the Event Viewer shows zero records for Application logs but it should be logging all of the time like the rest of my servers.  Any clues out there?

First make sure all the filters are cleared...
Right click on the application log and select filter current log.
Make sure the logged time is set to any time,
No event level is checked,
No event sources are selected,
All event IDs are selected,
No keywords are selected,
All users are selected,
And all computers are logged.

No events appear in an event log.


If there are no events in an event log, logging may be disabled on that log or the events may have been cleared by another user. To check whether a log is enabled, right-click the log, click Properties , and check the Enable Logging option. To check whether the log was cleared, search the System log for an event with an ID value of 104. This event is generated when a log is cleared.

Is the "Windows Event Log Service running? Can check under services...
start->run
services.msc

Make sure the startup type is set to automatic, and that the service is running.

Can you check if the Event Log Service and Event Collector are running?

If not start them, or try to restart the services.

The Log Service and events are running.  I cleared the log and started over and it seemed to be working just fine.  However, I logged back into the server a few days later and it was blank again and said 0 entries.
