#skype4b #powershell Event ID and Provider “Crash” (Source)

Certain third party software programs may use the same Event ID to write entries in the Application event log. An example is Event ID 10 used by the source “Verba System Monitor” (now part of Actiance) which crashes with information logged by Windows system providers like WMI.

Hence, when gathering logs with Get-EventLog and Get-WinEvent, remember to check not just the Event ID but also that of the Provider (Source).

Actiance Vantage and/or Verba are software applications typically deployed in a Skype for Business environment where ethical firewalls are erected for the purpose of segregating communications between (internal) business units.
