w2k AS event logs empty

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.advanced_server (More info?)

the event logs on some of my servers have started
remaining empty event though I know there should be events
populating them. I tried adjusting them sizes and the
options for when the log fills, but all to no avail.

Any ideas?

    You might be experiencing the problem in KB artice 829246
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=829246

    Also, you can try rebuilding your event logs with the following steps (from
    KB article 172156):

    1. Click the Start button, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and
    then double-click Services.
    2. Select the EventLog service and click Startup. Change the Startup Type
    to Disabled, and then click OK. If you are unable to log on to the
    computer but can access the registry remotely, you can change the
    Startup value in the following registry key to 0x4:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog
    3. Restart Windows. NOTE: When the system starts up, several services
    may fail; a message informing the user to use Event Viewer to review
    errors may appear.
    4. Rename or move the corrupt *.evt file from the following location:
    %SystemRoot%\System32\Config
    5. In Control Panel Services tool, re-enable the EventLog service by
    setting it back to the default of Automatic startup, or change the
    registry Startup value back to 0x2.
