How to find the Correlation ID error

How to find the Correlation ID error

             Correlation ID Error

One frustrating error SharePoint users will occasionally experience is the  'red X' with a cryptic correlation ID error. The SharePoint Administrator must perform the task of looking through the logs to find the cause of the error.

there was a command that will search the log files for the correlation ID.  

The command Merge-SPlogfile will automatically search the logs for the error ID. the command will search ALL the servers in the farm and place a log file on the server that you will run the command.  Here is an example of the  Merge-SPlogfile command:

Merge-SPLogFile –Path –Correlation <Guid>
(I run the command like this using the Correlation Id from sample error above.)

Merge-SPlogfile –Path c:\log.log –Correlation ba05e237-0680-403a-b9f6-e49f96ac55d4
(That will place a .log file on the C drive of the server which will only contain errors with the correlation ID.)
