SBS 2008 Daily Report Error Free

I have a SBS 2008 server. I have it configured to generate a detailed Network Report every day. For the last month the report has said that there are no errors in the Server Event Log. If I log into the server there are many.

How can I get the Detailed Report to be accurate again?

I created a new report and selected all of the options that are found in the Daily Detailed Report. When I generate the report it still says that there are no errors in the Event Viewer.
Any ideas on how to tweak this?

There's no real way to add to what's in the Detailed Report.   The SBS product team simply added items they thought were critical.

If you want more detailed reporting, you'll most likely have to look at 3rd party products...

The issue that I have; is that every single day it indicates that there are no errors in the event log. If I open event viewer I see about 23 - 27 for the 'last 24 hours'.

All I want to do is to be able to see these in the reports like I do for the other SBS that I look after.

I'd suggest that you have a look here at the SBS 2008 Technet Repair Guide for Monitoring and Reporting  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd560614(v=ws.10).aspx

@LostInWindows : Did you found solution for this issue. I am facing the same issue on a SBS 2008 server. Repaired the reporting and monitoring and recreating the reporting and monitoring databse did not helped yet.

Please post the steps/solution which worked for you.

The link thtat I had did not resolve my issue. Thje daily report generates about once every 10 days regardless of what I do. I have been thinking of installing a RMM tool such as SpiceWorks and generating reports from that; but I havent done that yet.
