Good morning everyone – as your journey continues into the land of the 70-282 exam…we knock out another topic as my virtual book reading. Have fun!
Monitoring and Reporting
SBS 2003 has rich monitoring and reporting capabilities you can see from the Monitoring and Reporting link under Standard Management in the Server Management console. In the real world, being able to receive performance and usage reports has really made my clients feel more comfortable knowing what is going on with the network. Usually I forward a copy of the user usage report with comments as well as an occasional performance report so my clients know they are under watch 24/7. Proactively monitoring a customer’s SBS 2003 site and communicating about potential issues sooner rather than later reflects the maturity of a successful small-medium business consultant, the type who would be welcomed into the Small Business Specialist program! Chapter 8 of this book explores the monitoring and reporting area in greater depth.
