Change The Types of Event Recording In Event Log


The Windows Event Log records events from the system, security, and application logs. In the Windows Registry, the EventLogLevel DWORD Value determines which types of events are recorded in the Event Log, according to the table below:

1 – Errors
2 – Warnings
3 – Information
4 – Debug
5 – Others

Note: Each value includes the Event Types from the previous value. For example, if the EventLogLevel value is 3, then Information, Warnings, and Errors will be recorded.

Events classed as Others (value 5) are always logged, regardless of which value is entered.

To change the types of events that are recorded in the Event Log for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server

1. Go to Start > Run and type regedit to open the Registry Editor.
2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server\Logging Info.
3. Choose the key you want to change and double-click the EventLogLevel DWORD Value in that key.
4. Enter a value from the table above in the Value data field and click OK.
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for each key you want to change.
6. Close the Registry Editor.

One executive lamented that he would have to carry his BlackBerry on a short holiday because he was expecting a key communication from his boss.

A client returned from holiday and reported he had called the office from his multi-function device just to see if it worked from a fishing boat off the coast of Mexico.

VoIP A Threat To Mobile


The communications industry has returned to profitability but developments in Internet technology are challenging the role and business model of traditional telecoms companies, creating pressures for a new approach to industry regulation, according to the OECD’s Communications Outlook 2005.

The growing popularity of Internet telephony, or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), threatens the fixed-line revenues of traditional carriers, especially for international calls, the OECD report concludes. In addition, however, VoIP presents a challenge to mobile telephones, which in many countries are now more numerous than fixed connections.

Nextel Partners Holders To Vote On Exercise Of ‘Put Right’


Nextel Partners Inc. disclosed Thursday that holders of more than 20% of its Class A common stock have requested that the company call a special meeting of shareholders to vote on whether to exercise their “put right.” The ability to exercise this put right was triggered by the recently completed merger of Nextel Communications Inc. and Sprint Corp.
