    Hi,

    Is there any way to set up extra logging in Windows 2003 server?

    I have an application that appears to be closing over night. I want to know if it is, if its erroring or if its user intervention.

    Is this possible to do?

    Thanks!

    You can enable very complex event logging down to the file access level. Doesn't the app have any logging functions? Does it run all the time? Does it have a personalized service? Does it constantly write data to disk or maintain some sort of local database?

    More thorough monitoring tools would do logging of the processes, whilst with your lambda 2003 installation you could get half way there by enabling process tracking and object access via local or group policies.

    The logging that the application does is simple - its a file distribution module that moves files from one location to another. Other than that, it doesnt log anything else.

    Thanks Dave - I will take a look at the KB article.
