Is there a way to view the SQL Server errorlogs in Amazon's RDS? I usually use sp_ReadErrorlog, but in RDS we need to be a member of securityadmin role.

The more I use SQL Server on RDS, the less I like it. So many features are missing. – datagod Jan 21 '13 at 21:41

Per the documentation, there's a custom stored procedure that does just that:

EXEC rdsadmin.dbo.rds_read_error_log [index]
