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?

Thanks,

Joe

According to some of the technet discussions, it is a known bug and has been fuxed in the SP1 Beta (not available to the public).

I have the same problem.

Can I just ignore this for now?

Thanks,

Ian

I just installed SQL 2005 service pack 1 on a test box and the errors went away. I'm going to install it on a production box soon--hopefully the errors will go away there too :-)

On our SQL2005 64bit, sp1 server, I just experienced the same error of "[LOG] Unable to read local eventlog (reason: The parameter is incorrect)" with every 5 seconds dumpping to the log.

After restart, it is gone. But it might come back, hope there is a sp2 to fix it.

env: "Microsoft SQL Server 2005 - 9.00.2047.00 (X64) Apr 14 2006 01:11:53 Copyright (c) 1988-2005 Microsoft Corporation Enterprise Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 5.2 (Build 3790: Service Pack 1) "

We are still seeing the SQL Agent log flooding after SP1.

I have this occurring on a Server Standard 2003 x64 box with Developers 64 bit SQL 2005 sp 1. I wonder if this is fixed in SP2?
