1034: W3SVC event log directory access denied

The IIS World Wide Web Publishing Service is responsible for managing the HTTP protocol and HTTP performance counters. An IIS web site is a unique collection of web pages and web applications that is hosted on an IIS web server. 

Event 1034 is generated when the W3SVC did not configure the logging properties for a particular site. The site is specified in the event log message. The server does not have permission to access the site's log file directory.

How could you resolve this situation?

Ensure that the computer name or share name in the file path is valid. If a remote drive is needed, mention a UNC path. Check if the computer account of the front-end web server has permissions on the specified path. The directory path specified must exist and be fully qualified.

We can help you simplify log management and improve your organization's security with EventLog Analyzer.
