The selection of answer should have been check boxes :-)


No checkboxes as you need to decide if there are additional items for each list. That's why they end with "only"

Thanks Steve for the question.

It has also been notice that Log file viewer is not displaying all the option at a time. If you open from SQL Server logs it will give you a few options, if you open from SQL Server Agent it will display some different logs, if you view log clicking data collection it will give different sets etc.


I can't cover all the possibilities of what's shown in different places. That also changes across versions.

I was just asking what is possible.

Thanks for the question Steve.

However I think version of SQL server should be mentioned in question as Remote maintenance plans can not be accessed by Log file Viewer in SQL Server 2008.


Fair enough. I've corrected this to 2012. I've been working on 2012 and 2014 only for a few years, so I didn't think about back-checking to 2008.

thanks for the question,

but why all answers say "only" at the end?? that's a bit confusing since no option has all the types listed in BOL. w00t


+1

With the "only" at the end, I think all of the answers are wrong.

Plus, you can open other log files (.csv, .log files) - although you will need to make sure they have field that the log file viewer knows about

From the options given I'd have thought it fair to say getting to the correct answer was reasonably easy, so why all the gripes?
