Argent Event Logs - help with interpretation

SophTheMoph used Ask the Experts™
I have recently started a new job in IT Admin where I need to read Argent Event Logs each morning and flag any 'problems' with the servers shown on the logs.  My predecessor told me not to worry about any 'user errors' or 'DNSapi errors' (??)  - but thats about all they told me. There are separate logs for SQL servers and non-SQL servers.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to see a list of common server events logged on Argent and what they mean?

Here are some specific log entries from this morning.... 47.doc
This means that your DHCP server does not have the AD credentials needed to provide secure registration of DNS records within DNS. This is not an issue because clients that are Authenticated users on the domain will register the computer within DNS automatically.

The RPC service stands for remote procedure call. If this is stopped you will not be able to run applciations from a remote computer. Remote Procedure Call allows you to run applications remotely. This can be an issue and Since I am not real good with Citrix, I can't give good advice on this.

This means you have a dual port PCI nic card on the machine. One nic probably does not have a cable in it, BUT is probably enabled. Right click, My Network Places, right click the second nic, and select disable. Don't use the second nic because multihoming a computer is detrimental to communications.

This appears to be a dual nic, and only one nic is plugged into the network. However, in this case the two nics are teamed together with teaming software. This means they act as one nic. If not, then the teaming software failed. So, in this case you need to choose. Unistall the teaming software and use one nic, or plug in both nics and hope that teaming works.

(this question may need a separate question within the Windows Networking zone)
