Quickly resolve unknown Event IDs

Quickly resolve unknown Event IDs

This tip was submitted to the SearchWin2000.com tip exchange by member Tim Fenner. Please let other users know how useful it is by rating it below.

In a previous tip I submitted, I indicated that you can use www.EventID.net to quickly resolve your Event IDs. Site members submit and share their experiences with the Event IDs they resolve; plus the site allows non members to search through the posts by both the Event ID number and source.

Microsoft also has a site dedicated to helping you find resolution to your Event IDs. It is located at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/support/eventserrors.asp.

The site allows you to search for Event IDs for the following products:

  1. Windows Server 2003
  2. Windows XP Pro
  3. Windows 2000 Server
  4. Biztalk Server 2004
  5. Exchange 2000 Server
  6. SQL Server 2000 Notification Services

Other, non-Event ID specific sites that I find helpful are:

  1. www.experts-exchange.com -- use their search across the top and search all sites (ex: Event ID 7240)
  2. www.kbalertz.com -- use the KB search (ex: Event ID 7024)
  3. www.google.com
  4. www.techtarget.com
