How to "unsuppress" logging of DNS events (Windows)

How to "unsuppress" logging of DNS events (Windows)

Windows 2000 DNS server.

Periodically I get one of two items showing up in the DNS log.

The DNS server is logging numerous run-time events.  For information about these events, see previous DNS Server event log entries.  To prevent the DNS Server from clogging server logs, further logging of this event and other events with higher Event IDs will now be suppressed.


The DNS server has encountered numerous run-time events.  These are usually caused by the reception of bad or unexpected packets, or from problems with or excessive replication traffic.  The data is the number of suppressed events encountered in the last 15 minute interval.

I want to see these events to make sure the errors and not detrimental. I have tried the directions in MS Technet article 198757 to unsuppress the event logging without success.

Anyone have any ideas?

I wouldn't worry about normally, but we are in the progress of migrating to Windows DNS and AD and I want to see all errors until I am sure all the issues are resolved.

thanks, Dana
