    Getting useful reports out of a linux server is pretty simple. Dig
    around in /var/log to find the right one, give it a sprinkling of
    perl, and out pops a nice useful report on just about anything you
    want.
    I can't figure out how to do similar on SBS2008. I can see great
    swathes of information in Event Viewer, but very little of it seems to
    be useful. When I tried to export the information to a CSV so that I
    could try to sort/filter it, the final column, which I assume would
    have had most of the information in, mostly contained just "A" or "An"
    The thing I'm most interested in at the moment is logins to RWW, RDP
    and desktops logging on to the domain, ESPECIALLY failed attempts. Is
    there anything obvious I'm missing here, any tool that would be useful?
