Problems viewing event viewer on remote PC

I am trying to view event logs on a remote PC on our network. This
problem is isolated to a single PC. I am able to view other computer
management tabs such as device manager, services, etc. It is like I
don't have the permissions to view the event log. I was able to do
this in the past.

This is the message that I get when I try to view the event log of the
remote PC. "Unable to connect to the computer "IP address". The
error was: The network path was not found"

Any ideas?

Re: Problems viewing event viewer on remote PC

Are you able to view the event logs on the physical node? In other words
confirm that the eventlog databases are not corrupt. Second option I can
think of would be a GP locking you out on the node you are trying to read.

I can view the event viewer from the physical PC. I don't think this
is a GP issue, but I will do some checking.

Re: Problems viewing event viewer on remote PC

Do the event logs on the offending node say anything, knowing that you can
read the logs on the console?
