I have a recently rebuilt (BIOS, firmware, RAID - everything) SBS 2003 server. I did all the proper updates (firmware, BIOS, patches, SP's etc.) and everything was working fine. I attached all the computers I was going to connect to (Server Manager-Client Computers) and then went around to each computer and did the https://servername/connectcomputers. All went well. Now I come back to the server and see that the email isn't working. I went and tried the CEIW again only to get an error 'Firewall Configuration' error. Is there any way to find a log that will tell me what the issue is? Or has any one had this happen to them? One minute good, the next.... Now my WSUS won't work because of the CEIW issue. Please advise. Thanks.

Assuming you have a decent hardware firewall I would go ahead and run the wizard again and point it to the router for the gateway settings.  This should disable the firewall settings as long as you are using only one NIC.

I had already set up the router on the CEIW. I went back and looked at the Device Manager and found that there was an issue with the SMB Controller, I reloaded the chipset and voila. Everything is working now. Maybe one of the numerous updates was out of order. I don't really know.
I do know that it is working now. Thanks for the suggestion though.
