Cannot read event log Veeam MP – Management Servers


Error accessing event log on SCOM Management servers – Error 31551, 31552 in Event logs 


Veeam MP Version 8 uses Dataset rules to collect host security profiles and snapshots, when a collector is installed on an agent no issue occurs as data is forwarded to the management server then written to the Data Warehouse under the Data Warehouse Account. On Management servers this data is processed under the health service run as account and fails.


  1. Start SCOM Console and navigate to Administration > Run As configuration > Accounts and open Properties for your Data Warehouse Action Account > Distribution. Manually add your Management Server where the Veeam collector(s) is installed. 
  2. Open Profiles and double-click on Data Warehouse Account to open Run As Profile Wizard. Navigate to Run As Accounts. Click Add and select your "Data Warehouse Action Account". Then choose "Select class, group, or object" radio button and click Select > Object. Look for Veeam VMware Collector object there, select and add it.

More information

The steps above are required to make sure that Run As accounts are correctly distributed to SCOM server that has a Veeam Collector role.
