    Hey all!

    I hope you can help me with the following issue:
    I've changed the IIS port of the 'Default Website Site' from 80 into 81. I
    needed to do this because of a third party tool running on port 80 on my

    RWW/Webmail is still working because I can use the https connection like:
    https://<server>/remote and

    Both the Server Usage and Server Performance Reports are not working
    anymore. Yes, I can still use https (like: https://<server>/monitoring) but
    the daily emailed reports are not working correctly. It looks like the tool
    that is creating these reports is looking for a http://<server>/monitoring

    Is there a way to change the emailed reports to use the https connection
    instead of the http one?

  2. Dear Customer,

    Thank you for posting to the SBS Newsgroup.

    I understand that you changed the Default Web Site to Port 81 and the
    monitoring component does not work. If I have misunderstood your concern,
    please let me know.

    Please understand that it is unsupported to change the Default Web Site to
    listen on another Port. Please understand that there are many Virtual
    Directories under Default Web Site, and they all listen on Port 80. If you
    change to another port, it may cause you many unexpected behaviors in the
    future, for example, backup, Monitoring, OMA components cannot work.

    I suggest that you uninstall the third party product, change the Default
    Web Site Port back to 80 and then contact the software vendor for
    assistance to install it on other ports in IIS.

    Thanks a lot for your time and understanding!

    Best regards,

    Brandy Nee
