SBS 2003 monitoring and remote web workplace not working
Posted on 2007-07-27
I am administering a SBS 2003 server and cannot for the life of me get remote web worplace working properly.
I have the intranet, exchange server, remote desktop all working fine and if i try to login into remote web worplace while my laptop is connected to the office network(although it is not part of the domain) i get through ok. However, when i am on a remote networ, say at home, RWW cannot be accessed.
The errors i ahve notice in my setup are as follows:
1) when i go to the monitoring and reporting page in server management the main page cannot be displayed. It asks me to check that the MSSQL&SBSMONITORING services are running. I also cannot configure any of the alerts notifications, etc as they always display an error saying the same component is not running.
2) when i run the monitoring configuration wizard and try to reinstall the settings, it always fails(red crosses beside all the tasks).
3) when trying to check the built in firewall settings I get the error " windows firewall cannot run because another program or service is running that might use the network address translation component(Ipnat.sys) - there is no other firewall software installed but i am using the firewall and dhcp server of my router, which all the other computers are also connected to.
I have tried doing a repair install(in-place upgrade) but still no go.
Any advice will be much appreciated.
