The Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 ConfigMgr Status Message Viewer is the primary tool for viewing status messages stored in a Configuration Manager 2007 site database. ConfigMgr Status Message Viewer is similar to the Windows Event Viewer, but it has additional capabilities that allow you to perform the following actions:

  • Export and print status messages.

  • Start multiple viewers to compare messages for troubleshooting.

  • Select multiple rows of messages to create your own grouping.

  • Copy messages to the Windows clipboard (with tab-delimited columns) to support pasting to applications such as Microsoft Office Excel and Microsoft Office Word.

  • Delete status messages (if you have permission to do so).

  • Find, filter, or sort on each column.

  • Specify which columns are displayed and in which order.

  • Select ConfigMgr Status Message Viewer's font.

  • Select additional startup and refresh options. (Options are automatically saved when you exit ConfigMgr Status Message Viewer.)
