What is causing the “The description for Event ID ( … ) in Source ( …. ) cannot be found… “?
This occurred while repairing COM+ on a 2003 Enterprise machine. After making some repairs, I was trying to see if any services hung on starting. I inadvertently tried to start Inter-Site Messaging. ME246717 pointed me to HKLM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NTDS\Diagnostics.
The keys there were empty (not in a domain, Active Directory not installed). That explains the lack of details in the event’s description. I also found this response from a MS MVP in a microsoft.public.windows.server.security thread: "You did not mention anything about running Active Directory. Is this machine a DC of a domain? If not, just set that particular service to manual or disabled as it is part of support for Active Directory".
In my case, the event was due to trying to start an AD service on a non-domain server. I do not know if the event can be logged on a server in a domain.
