ITIL defines a Known Error as: A Known Error is a problem that has a documented root cause and a Workaround.

If you have the Root casue but DO NOT have a workaorund. Would it be a Problem Reocrd or Known Error Record.

It's not either/or. A known error is a link to a problem. The problem exists until it is resolved.

Known Errors are documented in KEDB i.e Known Error Date Base and if it is a known Error then most of the times a solution is also there. If no work around for the error was found then it is not an error it is a problem, no matter if you the know the error or not. Error needs rectification while as problems need solution.

Going deep into terms like knowledge management and problem management in ITIL will surely help.
I hope my answer was help.
Any feedback is always welcomed

Thanks.... Smile

As mentioned above, it is neither.

The Root Cause is just something to note in the problem ticket until you have a workaround, at which point it becomes a Known Error.

A known error is a problem for which you have a root cause and have a workaround Or a permenant fix. Generally there should be a Workaround as it is the one that is used by the Service desk to resolve issues. There may be few cases where you know the root cause . workaround and the permenant fix is not there and in that case there should be a Problem case logged. To sum up - YES if you know the root cause but the Workaround and fix is not known then you can log a Problem case for it. I have seen cases where people log problems for the root cause and fix known Smile ... Remember that ITIL is just a framework Smile
