    Unanswered: List of SQL Server Error Messages

    Hi All,

    I was wondering if anybody knows where to get a complete list of SQL Server error messages. I am writing a stored procedure that scans SQL Server Logs for errors and if there are errors in the logs, I get paged.

    Thanks.

    Personally, I just look for keywords. Like "error".

    books online has a lot extremely unhelpful descriptions unser Troubleshooting --> Error Messages --> Error Message Descriptions --> System Error Messages.
    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    That's great. But besides the error messages I am also looking for messages in the SQL Server logs such as SQL Server terminating, backup failed, scheduler appears to be hung etc. I found these messages in the SQL Server logs and would like to get a list of all the possible messages that can be found in the logs.
