    Question

  • I'm on a Windows Server Standard 2008 R2 w/ Sharepoint 2010.

    I'm seeing Event ID 6398 logged every half hour:

    Event Details:

  • Hi,

     

    You can have a look this article to get more information about this event:

    About accessing deny, I suggest you to add the SharePoint Timer Service account into

    the local administrators group of sharepoint server and check the effect.

     

    Hope this helps

     

    Thanks!

  • This only occurs after the install of KB2345322

  • I had the same issue (on SP 2010 Foundation). The reason was that the permissions of the LOG folder were changed by the update.

    Rerunning PSConfigUI fixed the permissions for me.

  • You should not add the SharePoint Timer Service account to the local administrators group. This goes against MS best practice for SharePoint.

    A better solutions is:

    1. Open Windows Explorer, go to the following folder C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\
    2. Right-click the LOGS folder. Go to the Security tab, select Edit.
    3. Add the SP Timer Service account.
    4. In the Permissions section make sure Modify permission is set to Allow. Click OK, OK.
