I have just installed SQL Server 2005 Beta 2 and the machine that I installed it on now has the Windows Application Event Viewer log is over flowing with Event# 18453 "Success Audit", Source is MSSQLSERVER, Category is "Logon". It is creating this Event Viewer entry every 7 seconds and I can not determine how to stop the entry. is there someone that has had this problem or can tell me how to handle it. Thanks....

Don't have Yukon handy but in SQL2k you change this by going into Server Properties, Security and changing the auditing.

If you go to the workbench, right-click on the server in the Object Explorer and go to properties. Click on Security and change the Login Auditing to only audit for failures.


When life gives you a lemon, fire the DBA.
