    DCDiag failed test systemlog

    I am getting some problems with my Server AD since couple of days. Whenever I try running DCDiag test on my Domain Controller I get the following error message:

    "Starting test: systemlog
    An Error Event occured. EventID: 0xC0002725
    Time Generated: 06/25/2007 10:52:00
    (Event String could not be retrieved)
    xxxx(servername) failed test systemlog."


    I donít have any idea what is creating this problem. So far I have everything I know about but none of them worked. So hope anyone of you can help me out of this.

    Thank you.

    RE: DCDiag failed test systemlog

    Is there any thing listed in the Event Viewer log regarding this error message? If yes, please list them all here. Apart from this also try running "dcdiag /v /test:systemlog". See if you get some more details related to this error.

    That is not enough to analyze the problem ThomasNordmark,

    As stated above just check the event viewer system log for errors. It will help you and us to get the complete description about the problem. So check the log and post the entries from the event viewer here.
