    Hi,
    I have a Windows 2003SBS server that i am trying to configure usage reports
    on. I have run through the wizard from the server management page but i still
    cannot view anything in the usage reports viewer. The message i get is page
    cannot be displayed. Do i need to have some services started for this to
    work, or am i doing something wrong.
    Please help, i have no idea what to do next.
    Thanks, in advance.

  2. Hi - the best place for SBS questions is
    microsoft.public.windows.server.sbs. Always post there even if you crosspost
    to other groups (crosspost, not multipost).

    Try using a news client, such as Forte Agent, Thunderbird, or even Outlook
    Express, rather than the pretty clunky web interface to the newsgroups. It's
    a lot easier to do nearly everything that way. You can mark messages to be
    watched, filter the views so you can see replies to your posts easily, and
    search.

    The Microsoft public news server is msnews.microsoft.com and you can
    subscribe to as many groups as you like; no authentication is required.
