Having Trouble Finding Information on Microsoft Event ID’s?


Having my typical fun day of troubleshooting, I found a great web site.  the web site is eventid.net.  It can be found here: http://eventid.net/.  You can search for all the Microsoft event ID’s.  It also gives some great information on how to troubleshoot those Event ID’s.  I have not tried the subscription for the service yet, if anyone has please comment on this post and let me know what you think.  I have found the site to be awesome!

    A "TechNet Presenter" that doesn’t use the TechNet Events and Errors Message Center?

    I prefer to get my diagnostics from the horse’s mouth.

    I’ve used it a fair amount and have found it to be well worthwhile. I don’t have a subscription to the site, but am able to do a search for specific IDs. I can view the information posted by various users.

    Something else, I don’t use this site exclusively. Rather I use it in conjunction with the Microsoft KBs. There are times when I can’t find something on the MS site but can in EventID.net. The reverse is also true. So they both are utilized by myself and other members of the team.

    SD, I really like using both sites and sometimes one of the sites will have information the other does not. I find using both web sites is invaluable. Trust me I would love to tell you that all the information you need is at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/support/ee/ee_advanced.aspx, but sometimes it is not as informative as I would like, and yes I have bubble that feedback up to the PG. Thank you both for your comments and keep ’em coming.
