SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. You create a server audit on a computer that is running Microsoft SQL Server 2008 or Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2. You specify "Application log" as the audit destination for the server audit. Every time that the server audit is output in this scenario, an error that resembles the following is logged in the Application log:

Event Type: Error

Event Source: SQLSERVERAGENT

Event Category: Alert Engine

Event ID: 322

Date: <Date>

Time: <Time>

User: N/A

Computer: <Computer name>

Description: The data portion of event 33205 from MSSQLSERVER is invalid.

Therefore, lots of errors are logged after SQL Server 2008 or SQL Server 2008 R2 runs for some time.
