Unable to view the DNS event log

To set up the senerio for this question. A user had installed a DNS server on a Winodws Server 2008 Server Core installation and was managing it from a graphical interface on another server. When an attempt was made to look at the log files, the user received the error:

Unable to complete the operation on “DNS Events”.
The file size exceeds the limit allowed and cannot be saved.

Upon further investigation, I found that the log file was actually empty.






I also noticed that there were no zones configured for this DNS server. Once I created a forward lookup zone, I was able to open up the log.
