Loggin and Auditing Active directory

How do I audit login events and trace the login process of a user?  I have Dell scanner that consistently gives "Login Failed" when trying to write to a network drive.  I want to trace the login sequence for the scanner user in order to determine the root cause.  Also, are the audit logs written to a file or are they displayed in event viewer.   (Windows Server 2008)

Thanks

You can enable auditing of logon events on your network.
They entries will be written to the security logs of your Domain Controllers.

You can also enable debug logging on your netlogon service of each domain controller for additional logging.

Is this a permanent failure event? They why not reset the password and re-configure the client?
