From what version have you upgraded? What settings are you using?

Please use Remote Desktop to connect to your server and zip all file found in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\LightsOut.

Send the archive by PM.

You're asking too much from me, I have created zip but have no idea how to get it from server to my PC.

You can copy the zip file into a share like \\Server\Software on the server.

Then open the same share on your PC and attach the zip file to a private message (PM).

Thanks for the logs. Can you please tell me what's your problem?

From the logs I can see that you have enabled WHS client monitoring. The client RUDI-PC was always active the last days. You set up a forced calendar action which suspends the server. That's all working.

The problem I have is that only resume is working but not suspend.Tonight I've deleted calendar and set up new one and I'll see if it works today.

Are you sure? The log file says:

2010-02-07 00:00:02:015 [ 23] DEBUG Is suspend supported : True

2010-02-07 00:00:02:015 [ 23] DEBUG Is hibernation supported : False

Suspend is working. Have you enabled hibernation under power options?

It will not suspend anymore.The settings are the same as in previous version,it make no sense.Will try hibernation today.

I don't understand that sentence. From the log file I can see clearly that suspend is supported and working.

Version 1.0 includes a check for supported operations and notifies the users when standby or hibernation are not supported.

In version 0.8.x you've been able to select suspend although it was not internally working.

Please see here for troubleshooting suspend/hibernation: http://www.axonet.de/whs/webhelp/en/00034.htm

The second difference between 0.8 and 1.0 is handling of calendar actions: http://www.axonet.de/whs/webhelp/en/00021.htm

My first install was one version before 1.01.1038 and was working fine with the same settings which I'm using now.Is it possible that uninstall isn't 100 %;because install of the latest version picked up settings from old install. Maybe the registry should be cleaned after uninstall or something else is screwing

the proper running.Regards.

I have disabled PC monitoring and it's working now.Regards.

That's by design. You should not loose your settings when you update to a newer version.

here is the log of my server mine not shutting down. I'm sure this will look odd, because I was playing with it trying to get it to work all morning. I kept trying to schedule a Forced Hibernate.

    • So I currently have Windows Server 2012 Essentials (running in a Hyper-V VM) and am thinking about migrating to a Windows 10 server. I have 12 disks or so on the server all configured via Storage spaces. Can I simply connect these disks up to a Windows 10 install and have all the files appear? From what I have read the storage space info is all on the disks and it should work, but has anyone here actually tried it and succeeded. I have 10+ TB of data and the easiest way to get it to the new server would be to just connect the disks up.   Thanks, -Bill
    • Did you try CC cleaner or a disk clean up program? It seems to me that old files merged or not are still existing, do you have external storage that you could export the known good files to while you reformat and clean the 6TB?
    • Hello Is it possible to clone an external HDD containing the server backup to another external HDD? The external HDD doesn't have a drive letter, so how can I clone the drive?  I have two external drives in a Dual Dockingstation (2 drives), which has a button to clone from A to B, but I don't trust that solution too much..
    • I have a whs 2011 server, which has been running fine for years, however since I have updated the client pc's to windows 10 anniversary edition I am constantly getting a services not running error on clients, having checked the services, all are in the correct state, I have tried restarting some of the obvious ones, but with no success. if I select the fix option in the alert list for the error, it clears, but then returns after 20 mins or so. Not sure what to do next to solve this.
    • well it took a great deal of time but the repair made it possible for the cleanup to go pass the 14% strange however is that even though I told it to delete all the bad backups and merge the good ones it did not clear up any of the disk space. And adding all the good merge backup sizes together shows there should be the normal 6Tb free available. So the failed backups are gone the good backups are all merged but the disk space remains at 212 Mb. not sure how to tackle this I am going to look at it again this next weekend to see if I missed something.
