[SBS 2003 Std] Mointoring Website: The page cannot be found

  1. Hi,
    I have my SBS 2003 up and running quite a while. Runs like a rock!

    But I now wanted to use the Monitoring and Reporting feature of SBS 2k3.
    I successfully can run the wizard (did select reinstall/modify in different
    runs) but I always get 'The page cannot be found' error. What's confusing to
    me is that if I want the report to be displays in the Server Management
    MMC - I can see the HTTP 404 error and it says 'Open the localhost...'. Why
    is it referring to localhost?

    I also cross checked the KB article @ Microsoft that says that there
    shouldn't be any header information at the default website. That wasn't my
    problem :-|

    First guess was a DNS problem - if I resolve the server names:

    ping localhost: ok
    ping friend: ok
    ping friend.xxx.local: ok

    The default website has 'all unassigned IPs' assigned.

    OWA works fine

    Any guess??
