SYMPTOMS

Every time you restart your server, the following two events appear in the Application log in the Event Viewer:

Event Type: Warning
Event Source: EvntAgnt
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1003
Date: date
Time: time
User: N/A
Computer: servername
Description: TraceFileName parameter not located in registry; Default trace file used is %1.

Event Type: Warning
Event Source: EvntAgnt
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1015
Date: date
Time: time
User: N/A
Computer: servername
Description: TraceLevel parameter not located in registry; Default trace level used is 32.

CAUSE

This problem occurs if you install the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) service but you do not also configure this service. These error events are logged by the SNMP service when you restart the computer. If the Evntagnt.dll file is not configured for debug tracing when the SNMP service starts, these two warning events are logged.

WORKAROUND

To stop these events from occuring, add the TraceFileName and the TraceLevel values to the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SNMP_EVENTS\EventLog\Parameters
  • TraceFileName

    Type: REG_SZ
    Value: null (blank)
  • TraceLevel

    Type: REG_DWORD
    Value: 32 (0x20)
