Windows Server 2019 NPS Radius no event viewer logs (solution)

Steel Contributor

Hi all,


I would like to share the solution for the issue regarding the missing event viewer logs in "Network Policy and Access Services" on Windows Server 2019. 



CMD > sc sidtype IAS unrestricted

Reboot the server

Attempt the connection again

Did running this command become necessary recently? Was it caused by some security update? The NPS are being logged into Security Event Logs just fine on some of our NPS server running Windows Server 2019 Standard. Just one NPS server running Windows Server 2019 is not logging it to Security Event Logs.

Hi Abliz,

This was a new NPS setup on an existing Windows Server 2019. I don't think it is related to a security update. It seems to be a bug.

this didn't fix the problem for me. NPS still does not create any logs or any events. this is a brand new install of server 2019, looking to do a side by side migration off of 2012r2 nps, but have not imported anything yet.
I've also tried Server 2022 and it has the same behaviour
We have a one-year-old Windows 2019 NPS server that logs all the events, and I installed a new Windows 2019 Network Policy Server (NPS) that is not logging any events. 'sc sidtype IAS unrestricted' did not help either.
