Unable to copy/paste from Event Viewer on 2008 R2 Server

    Question

  • When connected via RDP to a Windows 2008 R2 w/SP1 server, I am unable to copy/paste information from event viewer on the server to my local desktop clipboard.  However, I can copy/paste from event viewer on the server to notepad on the server, and then copy/paste from notepad on the server to notepad on my local system (so copy/paste works in RDP).

    Is there some security feature in Event Viewer on Windows 2008 R2 w/SP1 that prevents me from copying the details directly from the server to my local workstation?

    Thanks

  • It works fine here. As a test I RDP to 2008 R2, open some event properties window and use Copy button, then paste into new notepad.exe window on local desktop.

  • Hi,

    When copying the logs in Event Viewer, please right click the logs in the middle pane and select Copy Details as Text.

    I have tested it successfully.
