Hi TeBear77,

It appears that it could be a permission issue. Let's try removing PA Server Monitor from the picture and see how it looks. Login to VDTBUTIL01 (where PA Server Monitor is installed) using the same account that PA Server Monitor is using. Run EVENTVWR.MSC and try to connect to the remote Event Log to see if it succeeds. If you are unable to do so the permissions is the issues.

Thanks
Quinn

Well now I feel like a dummy. Apparently there is an issue with our VMware template as the log file is not there and pointing somewhere it shouldn't be.

Thank you Quin
