How do you enable health reports on a SharePoint 2010 server? Under Central Admin, I go to Monitoring, click View Health Reports, and it says: A health report is not available for this site. Usage processing may be disabled on this server or the usage data for this site has not been processed yet.

However, when I go to Monitoring > "Configure usage and health data collection", it says that everything is enabled, including "Enable health data collection." We've been using this server for over 3 months.

What am I missing? Thanks.

Please verify and check the following sections:

  • System Settings > Manage Services on Server
    • Ensure that "Web Analytics Data Processing Service" and "Web Analytics Web Service" is running
  • Monitoring > Review Job Definitions
    • Change the service to "Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Usage"
    • Make sure the "Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Usage Data Processing" job is enabled

Once enabled, run the timer job and check the health report again
