I have a sick SBS 2003 machine which is spitting out a heap of alerts (created with Reporting & Monitoring) which I need a hand on.

There are two main errors that I am seeing:
1. Critical condition. WMI Status: 8 Timeout reached. The system may be busy and unable to service the request or the data collector may be misconfigured.

2. Critical condition. WMI Status: 2147749889 Enumeration failed. Object not found. Data Collector is misconfigured. 0x80041001

I am receiving these alerts for a lot of different components: Server Memory, Paging File, System Information etc.

I have followed the KB below:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?id=300956

But still seeing these errors - I dont care about keeping the data from the past, so if there is a way to clear data and configure then that is fine .... thoughts?
