Event Viewer will not display any logs

    Question

  • We have been unable to access any log files through the Event Viewer in Windows 2012 Server Essentials. We have tried restarting the logging service with no luck. Has anyone had this issue and , if so, what was the solution for the problem?

  • Thanks for the response.

    We receive the following error message:

    Event Viewer cannot open the event log or customer view. Verify that Event Log Service is running or query is too long. The RPC server is too busy to complete this operation.

    We have checked and the Event Viewer Service is running.

  • Hi,

    You may also try to use command to clear event log:
    wevtutil sl <LogName> /ca:<SecurityDescriptor>

    Reference - Clear an Event Log - for details:

    If the problem persists, please try to re-start the server in Clean Boot(with 3rd party process disabled) and check the result. or, using “sfc /scannow” to check/repair system files.
