You do know about www.eventid.net right?

Sometimes I take it for granted that people know about one of my favorite web sites, eventid.net it has saved me countless hours of searching and frustration time and time again.  Having issues?  Go drill into the event viewer and your SBS is trying to tell you what's wrong.  See those red stop signs?  Write down the event id numbers and then pop over to the eventid.net web site.  And while you are there, pay for the subscription. It's worth every penny and then some.  I still remember the time I ragged on Sean Daniel on the SBS Dev team for using it in an answer to a newsgroup posting.  I was giving him a bad time for a Microsofter using an external resource.  But you know what?  It's a great tool.  Can't complain when someone uses the right resource to answer a question.

It is indeed a great site, and well worth the subscription fee. But why type in Event ID numbers? Use the copy button on the Event property pages, and paste the whole thing in here:

Yes, it is an excellent site and I've subscribed two years ago. From their company website I have downloaded a free tool - EvLog - and I use it to get an webpage report via email on all the events in the last 24 hours. You better check it out, makes my life so much easier... http://www.altairtech.ca/evlog/
