Could not read eventlog - Error Code: 122
Jun 27th, 2006 at 11:46pm
 
I am monitoring a network drive on our file server. I am a domain admin and have every permission available to me. The job is not running as a service but manually. Below is the message I am getting via email.

Could not read eventlog - Error Code: 122
Description: The data area passed to a system call is too small.

Date/Time: 6/27/2006 5:41:12 PM
Computer: MO-COLDWELLE

This is a test to see if we want to buy this product so, please let me know ASAP what the problem might be.

Hi,

That is a strange message, I am not sure where it comes from. Does the same error occur if you monitor a local directory?

No, it works fine for local folders.

mmm, then it is probably a network issue. What is the operating system of the fileserver?

Windows Server 2003 SP1 is the server where I am trying to monitor files. I am coming from a WinXP SP2 box.

It should work fine on 2003. Can you try to install/run on the fileserver itself? If it works there I guess it is a permission issue.

We try to limit the software installed on that server. We have one big file server connected via fiber to a Terrabyte of drive space. That was part of the reason I wanted to test this app, so I didn't have to install it. I don't think it is a permission problem, I can run a script right now from my same PC that can read the event log on the fileserver. If it was a permission problem, that shouldn't work either. The FAST test of monitoring, worked without error. It only seems to be the event log.
