Build a great reporting interface using Splunk, one of the leaders in the Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) field, linking the collected Windows events to www.eventid.net. The EventId.Net for Splunk Add-on assumes that Splunk is collecting information from Windows servers and workstation via the Splunk Universal Forwarder.

The Windows Server Update Services Server experienced an error while attempting to write to the log file.
System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path "C:\Program Files\Update Services\LogFiles\SoftwareDistribution.log" is denied.

In my case, resetting the permissions on the file itself did not help as when the file gets renamed to be ".old", the new version does not have permissions to be created. It is therefore critical that the permissions be set on the folder.
I received this error after a clean install of WSUS because there was no ownership or permissions on the file: C:\Program Files\Update Services\LogFiles\SoftwareDistribution.log. I took ownership of the file with the currently logged in user, set it to inherit permissions from the parent folder and the problem was solved.
