    Hello,

    I've just performed an upgrade from v6 to v9.

    Today I can not start the windows management console. Get an error message

    "An error occured while launching/running the application. Error: The event log is full"

    "Stack Trace : as System.Diagnostice.EventLog.InternalWriteEvent(UInt32 ......... etc"

    Then lots of other data

    Cant see anywhere to clear the logs

    Hi,

    The error is indicating you have reached you max event log size allowance please follow these steps to clear them out.

    1.Open Server Explorer, and then expand the node for the server on which the event log you want to clear resides. For more information, see How to: Access and Initialize Server Explorer/Database Explorer.

    2.Expand the Event Logs node. You will see a list of the three main event logs — Application, Security, and System.

    3.Right-click the log node you want to clear, and then click Clear Event Log.

    4.Click Yes when prompted to confirm the deletion.
