  • There're several ways to use Correlation ID. For example, use Management Shell (Windows PowerShell).

    The simplest way maybe just use notepad. In Windows Explorer, navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\LOGS, and open the newest log in the folder using a text editor. Use Find function in the text editor to locate the correlation id.

    For example, my machine name is SHAREPOINT, current date and time is 11:58 11/25/2009,  then the log name is: SHAREPOINT-20091125-1151.log. By default, every 30 mins, a new log file is generated. You can find recent events there.
