Sadly even if the RPC error was resolved, no events are logged.  We
write to log.samba, but the AD DC does not to 'event log'.  We know
this would be desirable, because I've had customers ask me what would
be involved to implement it, as there are GUIs and tools that can parse
those logs, but there are not currently any plans to implement that.
