I don't understand why the Errors and Events Message Center does not do a better job of finding content that is already on MS sites. I was trying to look up Event Id 17055, "Database log truncated". I tried several versions of the text and also tried a couple of varitions using Advanced Search. All attemps returned the "No results were found" response with the help suggestion that I see Search Help for assistance.
I entered the same string in Google and the top hit was MS KB 818202.
It sure seems that MSDN/Technet should be able to index and search MSDN/Technech as well as Google does.
I have only tried the E&E Message Center a few times and I have yet to find any information using it.
Hi Raymond - For searching for specific event IDs, as you've discovered the Errors and Events Message Center doesn't always work. We're working on fixing it; in fact one of the things I was working on today while my baby was taking a nap and my wife was out was the plan for improving that site. :-)
