      WGS Forums Will Close on January 31st 2017   01/18/17

      Hi everyone, We're coming up to We Got Served's ten year anniversary and I've been taking a good look at the site to work through some plans for the future. I wanted to give you all a couple of weeks notice that I'll be closing WGS Forums at the end of this month.  As you'll be aware, the forums were opened to support Windows Home Server users and have done so brilliantly, thanks to everyone's participation. However, with each day that passes, there are fewer and fewer WHS deployments out there, meaning that forum registrations and traffic has now dwindled. I've tried a few times over the years to test some forums on related or adjacent topics, however, they simply haven't caught on. It's clear that these were always going to be predominately Windows Home Server forums and, with the passing of that platform, they've served their purpose well. So, please take some time to archive anything you need over the next two weeks. Access to the forums will end on Jan 31st 2017. Many, many thanks once again for your participation and support here. It's been a great community! Very best wishes Terry

  1. Those steps worked perfect. Thanks very much!!!
  2. I am getting ready to move to WHS 2011 and am using a 2nd older system to build a new installation WHS v1 by using WHS BDBB to backup the BDB and then restore on the new WHS v1. This way I can reload current hardware with 2011. My added question to this thread is that do I need to re-install the connector on my workstations so they get added to WHS first or does the restore of the DBD recreate the clients in WHS? What is the order of restoring the DBD and adding clients to the new build of WHS v1? Thanks
  3. No, that is not what WHS is all about. But it would be nice if they made backing up the Home Server the same as backing up the workstations. You can't install the connector software on the Home Server. It is a manual backup. Hence why I am asking of someone has made a plug-in to kick off the backup of the Home Server.
  4. Is there a plug-in for automating the backup of the WHS? Would love to set and forget like it does the workstation backups. Or does anyone have a method to cause the backup to happen on a schedule? Thanks
