IssueWhen trying to access Windows logs from a machine in a domain/workgroup in another domain, if that machine's domain name is not resolvable by the Windows Legacy Collector instance, then an error message similar to the example below will be reported for every event that is collected.

id=8106858  time=1398847139  level=failure  module=WindowsLegacyCollection  msg=[windows.Win2K8_2.sys_2] [processing] [WorkUnit] [processing] <ip_address>,System sGetDcName failed with error 1212 for the DC
WorkaroundIn order to prevent the errors from being reported for each event, add the domain entry for the machine that is not resolvable into the host's file of the Windows Legacy Collector server.
NotesBelow is a screenshot of the host's file that must be edited.
