We have an application that is writing to ETW (event tracing for windows) using an ETWTrackingParticipant for trace output. Does anyone know if ETW is supported in Windows Server 2003 or if it only exists in Windows Server 2008? If so - how do we get to the same ETW view we have in Windows Server 2008 (Event Viewer->Application and Services Logs->Microsoft->Windows->Application-Server Applications->Analytic)?

Yes ETW is available.

But there is no UI that supports showing ETW logs – you will need to write your own.
