    • PC Cannot Connect to Server After Disk Failure
      Hi, I have a windows 7 PC (64 bit) which had a hard disk failure. I replaced the disk but was unable to restore from the server (drivers etc) so re-installed windows etc. However, now the PC can see the server but when I attempt to connect it constantly ask for a password. Has anyone any ideas how to resolve this issue? Thanks Steve
    • Issue Installing Lights Out Client On Windows 10
      It's called Add-In on WHS 2011 and Application on 2012 and later. Yes, you have to remove the add-in, all settings and your license remain intact. Then close dashboard and finally install the new version. Launchpad is not required, but the client connector must be running because the connector deploys the client part of Lights-Out.
    • Issue Installing Lights Out Client On Windows 10
      Not exactly clear on the instructions you have given. "Bring all clients online and verify in Dashboard"  -  I'm looking at Dashboard/Computer and Backup to verify that ... and they are online.  Also, in the Dashboard/Lights-Out the client computer icons are "on". "remove Lights-out in Dashboard/Applications"  -  I have no "Applications" tab ... are you referring to the Dashboard/Add-ins tab and removing the Add-in altogether?  If so, will my highly customized settings and license information remain intact when I re-install the add-in? I just want to have clarification before I go nuking seemingly everything off the server. Also, one last question.  Are clients required to be running the "Windows Server Computer Launchpad" at startup for enable things like install/uninstall add-ins?  I have some computer where I have opted to prohibit the launchpad from starting (kid's computer).  Want to make sure that's not interfering with the process.   BTW, it made no difference updating this latest version of LO if a client was or was not running the Launchpad at startup.
    • Restoring back up fails.
      Hi there guys, I am having a problem restoring a backup from Windows Home Server 2011 to a Windows 10 X64 Pro Client, the dashboard upon trying to restore the client says an unknown network error has occured, but this is misleading the Server is still on the network in fact shared folders are still available. What i have noticed is that when this occurs if i check in the dashboard all my backups are saying Backup Status unknown.  To add to the mix I am running drive bender so the drives are all basically pooled as d:\. Drive bender is heavilly accessing the pool and validating files, I have sent a ticket off to the makers of Drive Bender but I am awaiting their response. I have just tried to restore the System Reserved 350MB partition which worked just fine, it just seems to get bogged down when I am trying to restore my 128GB SSD.   Any ideas guys?   Thanks    
    • All Client Backups Missing/no Clients Will Backup - Can Seem To Do Them Manually
      Well, a restore of the server would, in this case I would say, be a BMR of it. But frankly, I just do not know what you should do. You could perhaps try to do a repair of the installation with the setup-DVD but not sure if it has that option.
