Problems reading Win 8 / Svr 2012 Logs (access denied)

Due to the enhanced security in more recent operatings systems, there are a number of settings that can stand in the way of succesful log reading. The most common things to watch out for are listed in the Troubleshooting section of LogMeister & EventMeister's Help file, but a customer recently suggested to check the following as well:


  • Run secpol.msc
  • Go to: Local Policies > Security Options Find "Network Security: LAN Manager authentication level"
  • Change Setting from "not defined" to "Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated"
