Cause
Management Reporter (Windows) users will need Write access to the Application Event Log on the Management Reporter server when certain warnings/errors are encountered during report generation.
Resolution
Grant Write access to Application Event log on Management Reporter server for the Authenticated Users group

1. On the Management Reporter Server, open a command prompt as Administrator.

2. Run this command to get the details on the access currently granted to the Application Event log:

C:\>wevtutil gl application
Note: The line that shows the access is "channelAccess"

3. Run this command to grant read/write Application Event log access to the Authenticated Users (AU) group:

C:\>wevtutil sl Application /ca:O:BAG:SYD:(A;;0xf0007;;;SY)(A;;0x7;;;BA)(A;;0x7;;;SO)(A;;0x3;;;IU)(A;;0x3;;;SU)(A;;0x3;;;S-1-5-3)(A;;0x3;;;S-1-5-33)(A;;0x1;;;S-1-5-32-573)(A;;0x3;;;AU) 
Note: You can re-run the command from step #2 to confirm the permissions were applied. You should see "(A;;0x3;;;AU)" now at the end of "channelAccess"
