LOG] Unable to read local eventlog (reason: The parameter is incorrect)
I just had two seperate SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition machines suddently throw thousands of these errors within the last 24 hours. In both cases the the SQL agent and application event logs are just being flooded with a new entry every couple of seconds.
While the errors are being logged the Agent continues to run jobs (e.g. scheduled backups, etc.) without error.
A restart of the agent stops the errors and everything seems to be back to normal.
There is no commonality between the two machines, they are on different networks, domains, etc.
Both machines have been up >30 days and have not previously logged this error.
Anybody else seen this?
