So, in review of the event logs on the index server of the medium MOSS 2007 farm that my client is using I keep running across a lot (And I mean A LOT) of error events, some with the Event ID of 7076 and some with 6398. I ran across this interesting blog post by Gayan Peiris.

Now I am not one to just go on a hotfix rampage, but now that I have run in to problems with the last hotfix that I installed at Microsoft's request it didn't go so well. See my last post.

Anyhow, I thought I would just mention that Gayan has put together a very good post, but I also found that if you fallow the links you will eventually end up at Microsoft's DevDiv Hotfix Availability Program page. WHAT? Yep that is right, it is a way to get those Hotfixes that you need to get a hold of Microsoft to get. Now that doesn't make much sense, but either way it looks like you are able to download the hotfix that Microsoft is recommending to Gayan.

Just please be warned by the comment at the top of the page.

WARNING: These fixes have not gone through full Microsoft regression testing. Specifically, these hotfixes have had targeted testing which does not include testing in combination with other hotfixes. You are encouraged to only install the specific hotfixes needed to address the problem you have.

Please carefully review the associated KB article for each hotfix you install to verify that this is the fix you need and that there are no known compatibility or installation issues. You may also want to contact a Microsoft Support Professional.

I would hate to see you go through the same problems I did when I installed the last hotfix.

So I guess, what do I do? Recommend hotfixing the servers? Or just wait it out until Microsoft puts their seal of approval on the hotfix? I think either way it is going to be a tough decision for the customer.

Enjoy, and don't hotfix anything that's not broken. J
