When I click Monitoring and Reports on Server Management in Windows Server 2003 it comes up and says:  Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)

When I also receive my Server Performance Reports it says the same thing?

I've seen this before and the problem is caused by invalid host headers.  It is probably trying to reference the site by "localhost", and that name isn't setup in IIS as a host header.  To fix this, open IIIS Manager--->right click on the website and go to properties.  Then click on the Advanced button.  From there, click edit to edit the host header.  Instead of leaving it blank, you can modify the existing one and add localhost to the host header value.  Another option is to leave the existing blank host header, and add a new one with the same IP info but add localhost as the value.

Here is another EE post with the same issue:  http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/2003_Server/Q_20874908.html

Worked great.  I actually checked that post out earlier and couldn't figure it out perfectly.

Thanks!
