    Event ID 2003 after installing Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2

    After installing Service Pack 2 I received the following error on multiple
    servers:
    Application - Event Log
    Source: SysmonLog
    Category: None
    Event ID: 2003

    Description: Unable to open the Performance Logs and Alerts configuration.
    This configuration is initialized when you use the Performance Logs and
    Alerts Management Console snapin to create a Log or Alert session.

    Also, when I look at the Performance Logs and Alerts Service it is set to
    automatic, but it is not started. When I attempt to start it, I receive the
    following error:

    Windows could not start the Performance Logs and Alerts on Local Computer.
    For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a
    non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to
    service-specific error code 2003.

    Is this normal behavior post-SP2?

    Try changing the log on properties of the Performance Logs and Alerts
    service to use the Local Service Account. This fixed the issue when I
    was having this same error.

    Thanks for the response. Unfortunately I had tried this already and it did
    not resolve the issue. I checked a Windows 2003 Server that was at SP1 and
    noticed this service was in Manual. I changed the service on one of the
    Windows 2003 Servers that has SP2 installed (that is having the issue) to
    manual as well and I am not getting any error messages.

    Do you know if this will cause any issues? So far everything has been
    working without issue on this server. Thanks again for your response on this.

    In my case, setting the local group "Performance Log Users" on
    registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services
    \SysmonLog" and giving it Full Control did the job.
    The "NT AUTHORITY\Network Service" account should be member of this
    group.

    Starting the service resulted in giving the normal message "The
    Performance Logs and Alerts service on Local Computer started and then
    stopped. Some services stop automatically if they have no work to do,
    for example, the Performance Logs and Alerts service."
