Environment:
This is only happening on Windows 2003
NMS version is 7.5
robot v7.62
ntevl v4.03

Problem:
The ntevl probe is fetching events from an event log/log that was not configured.

Resolution:
Make sure your Profile->Event Selection->Log doesn't have an asterisk * in it because on Windows 2003, under the Setup tab there is no option to select logs like there is on Windows 2008 or any other platform. Due to this, the probe is checking ALL event logs and throwing alarms. If you don?t want the alarms then you must define more rigid rules in profiles and there are many checkpoints available to skip any unnecessary alarms.
