Running SBS2003 with patches up-to-date. I had been getting regular reports, daily and weekly, on the status of the server. These reports suddenly stopped after November 4. When I go to the Server Management console, and select Monitoring and Reports, I get the message, in the right hand pane "Server Error in '/Monitoring' Application.
Access is denied.
Description: An error occurred while accessing the resources required to serve this request. You might not have permission to view the requested resources.
Error message 401.3: You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials you supplied (access denied due to ACLs). Ask the Web server's administrator to give you access."
I've looked at IIS and everything seems to be in order there, though I do not have another server to compare it with right now.
I have Googled this problem and I have not come up with anything that either applies or actually helps to resolve the issue.
I am still able to get reports on specific events, but I do not get an integrated report as I used to get. I can get to the other sites listed under the default web site but monitoring just does not give me anything other than a 401 error stating that I am not authorized, etc., just as the error when trying to access it through Monitoring and Reports.
The only change made on November 4 was the application of the October patch releases, but I have not seen anything that indicates it would affect this facet of the server operation. The updates were applied prior to my getting the roprt on November 4, I still have IE6 installed on the server, not going to go to IE& until they get things worked out with it, such as the slowness, and improper rendering of web pages, etc. Things I'm sure all of yu have noted. I use WSUS for updates.
Have any of you faced this problem, and how have you fixed it, or gone about troubleshooting it. Does not seem worth a cal to PSS, as this is my own server at home, and I can easily view what I need to to ensure good operation of the server. But, I would like to enable this feature on several clients I have out there using SBS to help cut down the time I need to check out their servers on a regular basis.
If you need specifics, just hooler out and I will provide them for you.
Thanks for getting this far and any help you may be able to offer.
