System cannot access one or more event logs after upgrade to Windows 2012 R2
Posted on 2014-09-17
I recently upgraded a Windows 2008 R2 SP1 virtual VMware server to Windows 2012 R2. The upgrade went well and all applications are functioning properly. The only hiccup that I have is when I open the Server Manager Dashboard I get a warning the says "Refresh completed with one or more warning messages". In the Details I get the following:
Configuration refresh message: the system cannot access one or more event logs because of insufficient access rights, file corruption, or other reasons. For more information, see the Operational channel in the ServerManagerProvider error log on the target server.
Okay, no problem, I'm logged in as a domain admin so I don't think I really have a permissions issue so here I come Google. Not surprisingly I find a few posts that point to removing the Microsoft-Windows-DxpTaskRingtone/Analytic registry key. I don't see that one in my registry. I find another article that talks about deleting 4 other registry keys:
I do that and still no love. Please help if you have any further words of wisdom.
