Error Text for Error Domino messages

Sometimes if your Notes Client or Server is in a very bad situation you might get an error number without an error text.
In most of those cases there is an error text but it is not shown.

Here is an example:

"Lotus Notes error 0x1767"

In such a case you can use the Domino console on a running server to get the error text.

> show message 1767
[1FD8:0008-0610] Operation canceled

This should always give you the error text if there is an error text internally.

But some errors have no text. that's why you sometimes see cryptic dialogs wich hex error codes and a #

There are also ways in the C-API to get the error text and I have my own internal tools to lookup error text and also map semaphore numbers.
But this is a simple out of the box way to do it ;-)
