Script to Search SQL Error Log For a String

By pochinej,

This script(sproc)uses xp_cmdshell from sql and FINDSTR from DOS to search the current errorlog for a specific string such as kernel or failed login. Compile this in the master db and if you do not pass an input parameter a example usage will display for you. ex:
sp_dba_sqlerrorlog kernel
