Searching the Knowledge Base

You can search the Microsoft Knowledge Base from two locations:

When you search the Knowledge Base, you can supplement your search with keywords to help refine the articles that appear as a result of your search.

The following example uses the support search site, but similar concepts apply when searching from the MSDN Home page.

To search the Knowledge Base from http://support.microsoft.com

  1. In the Search the Knowledge Base box, select All Microsoft Search Topics (the default selection).
  2. In the For solutions containing (optional) box, type your search criteria. You can use a combination of Knowledge Base keywords and search criteria.

The following list shows some example Knowledge Base keywords:

  • kbAspNet returns ASP.NET articles.
  • kbAspNet kbSecurity returns ASP.NET articles that discuss security issues.
  • kbAspNet impersonation returns ASP.NET articles that discuss impersonation. Note that impersonation is not a keyword; it is simply an additional search criterion, which helps to refine the search.

Tips

  • To access additional search options, click Advanced Search.
  • To make sure the search includes all of the words you enter, click All of the words entered in the Using field.
  • To limit the age of articles returned from the search, select a value from the Modified: field.
  • To show search results from more categories than the default, select categories from the Categories: field.

You may find the following Knowledge Base keywords helpful:

You can use the preceding keywords in conjunction with the following technology and product keywords:

Key Notes

  • Transitive trust is always available between domains in the same forest. Only "external trusts," which are not transitive, are available in separate forests in Windows 2000.
  • Active Directory installations in perimeter networks (also known as DMZ, demilitarized zones, and screened subnets) should always be in a separate forest, not just a separate domain. The forest is the security boundary. This concept is illustrated in Chapter 6: Extranet Security.
  • If you need more than 5,000 members in a group then you need either .NET Server (which supports direct group membership of arbitrary sizes) or nested groups. The Commerce Server 2000 Software Development Kit (SDK) uses nested groups. However, the SDK is not required.
