Problem: Customer discovered that the ULS logs had stopped generating. Within the Logs file there were files but from an old date.
Troubleshooting: I looked in Event viewer and found this:
Tracing Service failed to create the trace log file at location specified in SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\14.0\LogDir Error 0x0: The operation completed successfully. . Traces will be written to the following directory: C:\Windows\SERVIC~2\LOCALS~1\AppData\Local\Temp\.
Fight Comparison Fedor vs Arlovski: This was an easy one that was a weird resolution but it worked. Kind of like when Fedor was getting pushed back by Arlovski, and then decided to throw a Hail Mary punch to his face, knocking him out cold.
Thanks it worked!
sometimes it doesn't work if tracing service is using ad account instead of local system account. using ad account it creates a log file of 0kb.
Good finding Sal! I'm just wondering whether you can post the Event ID which was showing you the error related to the Tracing Service.
It worked, after I restarted the Tracing service afterwards. Thanks for a good post :o)
