      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

Failed While Processing Webvirtualdirs

17 posts in this topic

Upon installing 2.0.5 you may see this error and the installation will fail. Something on your Windows Home Server has changed the IP Address of the default website. P80 did not do this, nor did any prior version. I did not take this under consideration for the installer, nor did I or any of my testers.

I will have a fix for this, this evening. In the meantime if you want to get P80 running now, go into IIS on your WHS. Right click the "Default Website" icon and select properties. Goto the Website tab, if not allready there. Make sure the IP Address field states "All Unassigned". Save the changes and reinstall P80.

Custom headers in IIS for the default website will also cause issues. The new build wil allow for custom headers as well as custom ip's for the default website. I hope to have a new build in three to four hours. Sorry about this to the people it applies to but we will get you up and running soon.

I hope you see I am actively trying to fix any and all bugs. I really want to see this app succeed.

This problem just got way to entirely not good when a person changes the header of the default website to something other than the default....

I am not sure their is a solution for this. I have fixed if a user has selected specific ip for the default website, but it looks like if a person changes the header then this is major work.

Thanks to whoemever wrote the My linkhttp://wiki.wegotserved.com/index.php?title=Protect_your_WHS_Web_Site_from_ IP_Scanners .. you just ruined my night.....

I will not be releasing a fix this weekend.

Basically if you have the know how to change IIS settings then you can fix the problem:

1. Set the default website IP = All Unassigned

2. Set the header for that to nothing

3. The port must be 80

4. Install P80

If you didn't change the settings yourself, then I am sorry but there is no easy fix for this and Im not sure how to make it work with customer headers and/or custom ports.

I imagine this affects very little people.

Dude I think you are doing a hell of a job with support!!!

What I'm really surprise at is that we never seen this error before. I can't count how many times I installed/uninstalled all version and test builds of P80 while helping you test thing. The countless things I broke while doing all that testing and this never once showed it ugly head. I was stunned when I seen the error being reported even on virgin machines. I mean I broke about every thing I could break in P80 and you found and fixed the problem every time.

Anyway I wanted to give you a public 'atta boy for all of your hard work and outstanding support of your great little app!

Seconded. It is good to see someone come along with an idea and persevere with it into a very, very useful add-in.

Damn you guys are too kind :D .

I wouldn't feel to bad about it fasthair, you gave me a ton to fix to get this out haha. Who knew users would be going into IIS and making their WHS's more secure =).

Ill show you how to dig into IIS later if you want, but hell put this on the checklist for things to check for in the next releases!

Thanks for the quick, concise, and useful support! Rep added for snowdins's posts on this subject.

I said it before and I will say it again... This is the best non-app add-in to come down the pike in a long time!

And it got even better when Nick at Asoft and Snowdins got together to add the remote shutdown/suspend/hibernate/WOL functionality!

That would be me. I make no apology nor do I intend any criticism. But I would think that if P80 is going to be useful to a broad range of WHS users then it is going to have to be able to play nice with other websites on the machine besides the default. If you want to do some testing in that regard I will be happy to help.

I was more ticked off at the world at that point as it seemed I would never get an installer to work 100% =) I do agree that P80 needs to play nice with everything which it does. Its just my damn installer that barfs.

Once the settings are put to defaults the installer works fine, the user can then change the settings back to whatever they were and P80 will still work great. I hope people understand its just the installer and not P80 itself that has problems with this.

I see the stuff I need to do with my code, but it will take a bit for me to get into it. I am now working on localization, so once that's finished I will find yah to do some testing on my installer =).

Sorry for the misinterpretation and my confusion between P80 and it's installer.

Ok FYI I changed my port back to 80 to do the install then changed it back over to 8008 (my ISP blocks 80) and it is working fine for me.

I will not be releasing a fix this weekend.

1. Set the default website IP = All Unassigned

The next release will fix all of these issues. I have finally got some code together to allow for any IP Address/ Host Header and/or Port for the default website in any combination/order/etc.

I was using the IPScanner tip from this website and I assume that's why I couldn't get your add-in to work. After following your suggestion in this thread I got it to work. Thanks for a great add-in and your work. Any idea when the release will come?

Thanks again!

A couple more weeks. I am waiting for Cloudberry to get a new update released. Once that is released and working I should have a final build for testers.

    • Hi, I am looking for these drivers HpMssServiceSetup_v1.0.6 but the dowmload link is dead. Does anyone have a working link please. Thank you.
    • That guide is for installing Exchange on a Server Essentials network, not necessarily installing both services on the same server, which isn't a good idea at all to do (as SBS with Exchange 2007/2010 was a good example of how poorly both AD and Exchange run when both are on the same server), nor is it supported by Microsoft.  Exchange 2016 initially had compatibility issues when installed on Server 2016 until Microsoft's server team came up with KB3206632 and the Exchange team released December 2016's quarterly update (CU3 or 4). Your IIS Reverse proxy will only (currently) be supported on Windows Server 2012/R2, as you've no doubt discovered, the Application Request Routing version and update only support 2012/R2. I know it works for 2012 R2 because I'm running Exchange 2016 CU4 on Server 2012 R2 on my domain that also includes a Server Standard with Essentials Role installed (5 VMs:  2 Domain Controllers, Exchange 2016 CU4, Server Essentials and a Reverse Proxy server all running 2012 R2 using ARR 2.5 -- the ARR Reverse Proxy allows me to share Exchange, Essentials RWA and my QNAP on 443), but thus far, I haven't seen anything for Windows Server 2016.  ARR 3.0 might work with Server 2016, or your other alternative is to deploy another server running 2012/R2 and use ARR 2.5.
    • IPv6 is unchecked on the adapters for client and server and disabled on router. Still no connection. Any other ideas?
    • I realize this is probably not the right place. Is Server 2016 Std available for only one CPU/eight cores?
      All is find is 16 cores or more. Will probably end up with 2016 Essentials anyway.
      Thank you.
