It can be frustrating to call support only to have your issue resolved by an article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base. Sometimes you are just happy to get the problem solved, but most people prefer to solve something themselves and avoid calling support. So it may be interesting to know which KB articles are used the most in Directory Services support to solve customer issues. By becoming more familiar with these articles you can improve your troubleshooting skills for the most common Active Directory-related issues.
When we resolve an issue using a specific KB article, we can link that article to the case for reporting purposes. We report on this to get an idea of which articles are most useful, as well as to help understand the types of issues we see the most. While there are other ways we report on top issues, this is one of the few that shows KB article usage.
