I was messing around with PowerShell the other day and using it to read SQL Server error logs. It’s actually a pretty trivial thing.
Quick and easy. Then I tried to read from a clustered instance of SQL Server and ran into an issue
This didn’t make a lot of sense, after all the method was there before. I decided to go and check to see if the method existed
Yup, the method exists just fine.
I couldn’t figure out what was going on. I enlisted the help of Sean McCown (blog|twitter) who posted a short training video on how to read the error logs on named instances of SQL Server.
