    Upgraded my sbs2008 Standard domain's exchange 2007 to SP2 using upgrade
    tool (nice tool).
    After successful upgrade and restart all looks good. Mail working with no
    Noticed next morning that daily reports didn't turn up. I run ORF spam
    blocker so checked and nothing catch there that should not be caught and no
    monitor email. Checked SBS2008 console.reports and the visible report is for
    the day I did upgrade (6am). Generate report takes 3 minutes before console
    faults and restarts. Windows Sbs logs for monitoring show no new logs at
    all. Nothing obvious in event logs.

  2. Hello,

    Thanks for your post.

    Based on my research and experience the tool should not directly caused the failure or crash of monitoring and report feature on SBS 2008 server.

    Please check the MonitoringServiceLogs for more information:
    C:\Program Files\Windows Small Business Server\Logs\MonitoringServiceLogs
    Contains logs for SBS Monitoring and it's associated data collection tasks

    If the SBS console still crashes, please also check the Console.log as well for more clues.
    C:\Program Files\Windows Small Business Server\Logs
    Console.log SBS Console Log

    Related more information:

    BTW, how about creating a new customized report and run it manually to check if the new one works? Please feel free to have a try.

    Hope this helps.

    clues, feel free to post back with detailed error messages.
