Actually , i installed CSA MC on a server (its name CSAMC.NMEG.Loacl), and i tried to install the CSA on a group of servers .

The CSA MC and these servers are in the same domain. One of these servers (its name EG-NMEG-BACKUP.NMEG.LOCAL)

is registered with the CSA MC but there is an event regarding to this server in the event log.

Also there are some events regarding to DNS server ( and DHCP server(

You might want to begin by putting your servers with the CSA agent in Test Mode. It's easier to test and tune the CSA Rules this way and it won't interfere with your normal business functions.

You might also try reading a couple of books by Chad Sullivan regarding CSA that are available from the Cisco Press.

If the Events you uploaded to CCO are ones that you want to allow then you can simply run the wizard and follow the defaults to allow them. When you become more proficient with tuning CSA there are more precise methods for configuring rules.

Hope this helps.

The CSAMC is subject to very restrictive rules. To see what the events mean, look at the rules that trigger them.

A good way to do this is look at the event, hover the mouse over the rule and click on "Explain Rules".

The events also explain what happened to a degree.

The HP System management home page service wasn't allowed to access a Cisco resource

You host was not able to connect to a time server (UDP 123).

It was not able to connect as a client to your DNS server on NetBIOS port 139 (not sure why it would want to).
