No capture of deletion info, no log info, Event 6875 error.


In SharePont 2010 multi server farm. I have installed the tool based on the User Guide (using PowerShell commands). Have created a directory on a non-system drive on each server (D:\SPSiteRecycleBackup) and have updated the configuration.xml files as instructed. I also created a directory for the log files (D:\SPSiteRecycleBackup\Logs).
I also added the following entry to the web.config files <safecontrols> <SafeControl Assembly="Microsoft.SharePoint.Site.RecycleBin, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=98e95e81f8e48206" Namespace="Microsoft.SharePoint.Site.RecycleBin" TypeName="*" Safe="True" />

The Site Collection and Sub Sites are still deleted fine. However there is no Capture of deletion information or Logs and I am getting the following error:
Event 6875, SharePoint Foundation
Error loading and running event receiver Microsoft.SharePoint.Site.RecycleBin.DeleteEventReceiver in Microsoft.SharePoint.Site.RecycleBin, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=98e95e81f8e48206. Additional information is below.
: The source was not found, but some or all event logs could not be searched. Inaccessible logs: Security.
Looks like the user for this event is NT AUTHORITY\IUSR
I validated that the the WSS_ADMIN_WPG, WSS_RESTRICTED_WPG, and WSS_WPG local groups on the server were correctly populated.
Any Ideas on how to resolve this? What App Pool does the tool use/impersonate when it runs?

I got this error too..

The Event Log message states: ":The source was not found, but some or all event logs could not be searched. Inaccessible logs: Security".

I followed all the steps you took in your original post and got the same error message.

I fixed it in my case by logging in interactively on the WFE with the install account and deleting a site from there. once I'd done that I was subsequently able to create and delete sites from other machines with other accounts over the network, as a normal user would.

I think it does something with the event log the first time it runs, but not sure what, I haven't looked into it. Just glad it works - hope it works for you too.
