I receive this error when trying to run the Auditing Log:

Stack Trace:

[SPException: User cannot be found.]

Searched in Google and the must probable caused listed was that the server couldn't see the Domain Controller, or privileges issues. none of those causes apply to my case.

Any other clue?

Interestingly, I get this on one of our site collections, but not another. I have FULL CONTROL and a Farm Administrator. Anyone else been able to crack this permissions issue? It seems like it is definitely a permissions issue.
