I have been managing Windows Server 2003 machines at work, but I am a software developer. (Please don't say 'hire a sysadmin', the point of this question is my own learning).
How do server admins learn what to look for in event viewer? Sometimes there will be strange things that I don't understand, many times there will be things that are always there that I simply ignore because they are always there.
Is there some resource somewhere that can train me on what is normal behavior for a Windows Server event viewer log and what things may spell disaster?
Or maybe there is some third party tool that will decipher them and make recommendations? I would prefer the learning route though.
