      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. Thanks - i'll keep an eye out for formal support but its good to know its working so far.
  2. Does anyone know if server 2012 essentials (not r2) will support backup and restore of Windows 10 clients? It does not seem to be listed as supported right now. With the dawn of Windows 10 I'm wondering if I'll have to do a server update as well as clients.
  3. I think I'm having an IO load issue: At night, i have 2 client PC's backing up and the server does its backup. My server backup failed last night; it stated the D: drive was not ready. Server backup occurs at 11pm. Clients back up starting around midnight. Looking at event logs It's almost like I have an IO load issue: Log Name: System Source: volsnap Date: 4/29/2013 11:18:15 PM Event ID: 25 Task Category: None Level: Error Keywords: Classic User: N/A Computer: Expressway.Road.local Description: The shadow copies of volume \\?\Volume{2846f327-4c3f-430d-a7ca-c38129a2308c} were deleted because the shadow copy storage could not grow in time.

  4. Hello - I know this is a stretch but so far I'm not getting very far with cloudberry's support team so i thought i'd try here. Has anyone tried to migrate backups and settings from cloudberry on WHSv1 to a copy of cloudberry on SE2012? I've self migrated my data and my shares so they are an identical match (except for the server name) I've re-added a glacier storage account to the server 2012 box and then, at supports request, opened options, repository, and click re-sync. It takes hours or longer but it eventually finishes. The problem I see is the data appears unstructured. What was nicely nested like below: Photos trip1 trip2 trip3 is now setup as such \\servername\sharename\photos\trip1 \\servername\sharename\photos\trip2 \\servername\sharename\photos\trip3 And stranger still, at the bottom of the list i have some structred data: Photos trip1 trip2 trip3 Most are empty folders (the data can be found at the above long path) but some have photos in them. Before i setup a backup plan again and risk having to re-send a lot of data to amazon, does anyone have any tips for resolving this? I know its a stretch... thanks
  5. Hi folks; I'm new to storage spaces and server 2012 essentials. I'm moving my data from a WHSv1 box to SE 2012. My setup: Right now i have the OS on one drive (256gb) and a 1TB drive in the SE 2012 machine. In my old WHSv1, i have 2, 1tb drives. I'm moving, through the network, all my data from the WHSv1 box to the SE2012 box. Once done, I'm thinking of moving the 1TB drives into SE 2012 to create a mirror or parity set to protect the data. Any idea how to best do this? From what I can tell I would have to create a pool of one disk, with one virtual/thin disk with no resiliency. Then I would have to move the data to that. Then I would add one or both of the next disk to the same pool and create a mirror or parity thin disk and move all the data to that disk. Is this the best way to do this? Any other ideas? Thanks!
  6. Thanks - it looks like the settings match your support page. I'll try removing the LAN cable next.
  7. I'm running whsv1 with lights out configured to sleep at 7am every week day. Today it woke up at 713am. The other day it woke up at 834 am. I can't figure out what is waking it up. It's set to wake up at 4pm but wakes earlier. Anyone have any tips on why / how to troubleshoot?
  8. Just had my older 500 gb western digital drive i was using to backup whs die. I replaced it with a usb 3.0 1Tb segate drive. Now this whs is running on old hardware - a dell dimension 4600. If i log into the server on RDP i can see and browse the drive but the whs console doesn't see it when you right click on the server and choose backup. I'm met with an error that no backup harddrive is connected. Help?
  9. I'm not sure how to tell (basic instructions to determine if this is enabled?)? I've emailed support the log files per your link. thank you for the help in advanced.
  10. Hello - I'm running the latest version of lights out for whs v1. I've 'disabled' lights out via the console for 100 hrs. I've found my server is still sleeping/waking on the lights out schedule. Ideas? Help? What logs or info do you need to help resolve this? I'm running a large backup job so i dont want the box to sleep (normaly it sleeps during the day when i'm at work).
  11. Hello - I'm having an odd issue with my whs v1 remote access. Untill today everything was ok with my remote access. My ISP blocks port 80 but not 443 -- I confirmed running nmap on myself that 443 is open along with 4125. I'm running on custom hardware for over a year w/o issues. I'm not sure what, if anything, I changed recently. I've tried: rebooting many times turning off remote access, then turning it back on (also with a reboot between) I've confirmed i can browse the site locally on my PC by pointing to the IP of the homeserver. I've tried checking firewalls including turning off the firewall on whs. The error I get: The connection has timed out The server at https://tange1.homeserver.com is taking too long to respond. Any ideas? Seems to be the host rather than a network problem but I'm stumped how to troubleshoot this.
