When I open health monitor on some sbs servers, The only thing that opens is 'actions', with no action in it ... .
I can't see the 'small business server alerts', nor the 'send email with monitoring alert, and the two default 'store alert in monitoring database'.
Is this behavior by design? because I noticed this on more than one sbs server .... .
How can I fix this behavior?

No, this is behavior by failure.  The monitoring tools have probably gotten corrupted.  You can try to fix the quick way by reinstalling monitoring features.  Open the Monitoring & Reporting section of the Server Management Console and click on "Set up monitoring reports and alerts".  Then on the second screen, select "Reinstall Monitoring Features".

This should recreate all of the default alerts in the Health Monitor.  If it doesn't you will need to reinstall Administrative Tools through Add/Remove Programs > Windows Small Business Server > Component Selection.

Set Server Tools to "maintenance" and Administrative Tools to "uninstall".  Continue through the wizard then reboot your server.  Go back to Add/Remove Programs > Windows Small Business Server > Component Selection and set Server Tools to "maintenance" again and Administrative Tools to "install".  You will need your original SBS CD's and after this finishes you must reinstall SBS SP1 if you had that installed.

(If you didn't have SBS SP1 installed, then you can just select "reinstall" on the component selection screen for Administrative Tools).
