Error 4201: Windows Server 2008 R2 Event log service will not start. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am facing issue in one of the Windows Server 2008 R2 server, its event log service is not starting. 

    Getting an error : 4201. The instance name passed was not recognized as valid by a WMI data provider.

    I have tried renaming the RTBackup folder in safemode and then restarted the server. But this solution does not help me. 

    I have seen many blogs they all are all referring to same above mentioned solution, but that solution didnt help me.

    Kindly need some alternate solution.
