Identifying Network Operating System Problems

All network operating systems provide some sort of utility (or utilities) that you can use to troubleshoot problems related to the network operating system software. These utilities allow you to perform tasks such as seeing whether software drivers for hardware devices such as NICs have loaded correctly (as the system boots up) and whether a particular application has failed.

In the Microsoft Windows 2000 Server environment, a utility called the Event Viewer is provided. The Event Viewer allows you to view three different types of log files: the System Log, the Application Log, and the Security Log (we discuss the Security Log in more detail in the next chapter).
