Channel Initialization

Updated: December 6, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

Event logs are normally initialized when the Event Log service starts. This initialization can also happen during installation of a component that creates a new log. When the initialization fails, the log is not available to receive events and the diagnostic and troubleshooting capabilities of administrators, support personnel, developers, and automated utilities can be compromised.

The application-defined logs are specific to the event provider that created them and will only affect events published by that provider. The operations that remain for the Event Log service and all other event providers are not affected when there is a problem with one of the event logs being initialized.
