Eventlog search tool — Find quick help with windows event log entries

Jerry Lees Jerry Lees Profile: Jerry Lees


While not VBScript related, I found this Microsoft Eventlog and Error Message Search a few days ago as I stumbled around looking for tools that I thought network administrators would need on my site that I’ve been toying with– I had to share the tool with you as well!

 The tool itself is an awesome resource, similar to— except it’s FREE and it comes from Microsoft themselves providing links to Microosft content about the event entry or error message.

 You can search for any combination of the following:

Microsoft Product|
Message ID
Event Source
File Name

When you do it takes you to a search result page that lists the available results for your specific search, each seem to have not only an example of the message, but also an explanation of what the event means…. and the best part a section entitled User Action that gives a possible solution for the problem!

 Enjoy the tip!
