Windows Event log missing log source

Reported by: edwardk Owned by: somebody
Priority: minor Milestone: Release 6.1
Component: smartd Version: 6.0
Keywords: windows Cc:

Description

The Windows Event log service does not have a message file registered when the smartd service is installed. This results in Event log messages similar to:

The description for Event ID ( 2 ) in Source ( smartd ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: smartd, 3648, Info, Device:
.\scsi1: [areca_disk#08_enc#01], SMART Usage Attribute: 190 Airflow_Temperature_Cel changed from 69 to 68, Device:
.\scsi1: [areca_disk#08_enc#01], SMART Usage Attribute: 194 Temperature_Celsius changed from 31 to 32.

Registry entry keys can be added to fix this issue at

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog\Application\smartd

For my system:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog\Application\smartd]
"EventMessageFile"=hex(2):43,00,3a,00,5c,00,50,00,72,00,6f,00,67,00,72,00,61,\

To clarify, EventMessageFile? should point to where ever the user's copy of syslogevt.exe.

Run "syslogevt -r smartd" to create the registry entry.
