Hi,
In one server's event viewer, the system log 2,209 events cannot show up.
What's happening?
Thanks,
Roger

I am not quite sure I understand your question but first you may want to try
increasing the size of the log or configure to overwrite events as necessary. Also
see the links below on corruption of EV log files. --- Steve

Thanks, Steve.
It shows 2,209 events in the system log but just can't see them. There's no
any error message. Application log is fine.

As Steven suggested, change the properties of the system log (and *all*
logs) so that "overwrite as needed" is selected, and bump up the max sizes a
lot. I'd do 20MB each if it were me.

Thank you all.
I cleaned up the syslog and then I can see them and also made the changes
you suggested.
