All of us have probably encountered generic error messages while looking through the SQL Server logs. I was wondering if anyone had written, in a single white paper, the top ten errors that will usually be network related, the top ten errors that will usually be storage related, the top ten errors that will usually be OS related, and ways to troubleshoot/diagnose these as such with relevant information to be given to your SAN/Network/Windows buddies? Obviously, the actual network/SAN/Windows implementations that we use will influence what errors we receive, but I was wondering if there are specific errors everyone encounters from time to time?

It has been my experience in 15 years of consulting on SQL Server that the vast majority of stuff you need to deal with, fix, improve, etc. with SQL Server is NOT logged or represented in any way in the error logs.

To answer your question directly I have never come across such a document or blog post.

No, nor I. Most of the stuff in the error log is pretty self-explanatory and not usually vague. But, if you are looking for a good getting started book on troubleshooting, Troubleshooting for the Accidental DBA is a great resource.

First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair
