What I'd like to know is, where do you find out about these secret registry keys? I've always wanted to be able to bump the number of error logs kept, was confident that there was some way to do so (a very typical Microsoft feature), but never stumbled across the methods. In my defence, I never tried very hard... but where would you start looking for this stuff? (I'm assuming it's nowehere in BOL.)
In any case, thanks for posting this and the rest. Good to review what we've already done, and find out about what we've overlooked!
