folks Ive seen recommendations for a work around database as well as a known error db. I guess / if / when I get a nice new service desk tool this is the type of functionality I can look out for. However looking at the ole manual it says work arounds for problems are recorded in the known error record. Workarounds for incidents that do not have an associated problem records are documented in the incident record. So trying to work this through into real life what are you doing out there in terms of capturing / managing work arounds do you have two separate repositories of information or do what the book says. To me if we do what the book says the SD tool may be able to do some pattern matching for me but most tools will force the user to read through various incident logs (in the case of incident work arounds).

I would have thought that a workaround for an incident (if that is not a non sequitur) not related to a problem or known error would have purely historical value.

If the incident could recur, then its cause is not resolved and it would be logical to record a known error and raise a problem.

As for having yet another database for workarounds, the only possible reason would be if you cannot store it in accessible form in your otherwise super-duper integrated Service Management database.

Workarounds for users can be FAQs

Work arounds for system admin types could be the following

If Microsoft product - reboot always (snicker)
