I've been running WHS 2011 for a few days now but I keep on getting a "Computer Monitoring Error" and the associated help information is not that helpful. The exact error is:

Computer Monitoring Error

WHS 13/04/2011 6:21 AM

Can only partially assess the health of this computer

1. An error was encountered with the last health assessment.

2. Health assessment will be reattempted at the next scheduled time.

3. For more information, click the Learn more about this alert link.

Everything seems ok but I don't know why I'm getting this error.

You are not alone. I too am getting this error and I am using the released version of WHS 2011. I don't remember getting this using the RC version but may have. Hopefully someone out there knows the answer because the help file isn't!

I got it a LOT with the Release Candidate - not so much now that I'm running the OEM version but I *do* get it.

I'm running a home-built i5-based tower.

I get it too, and it is attached to my WHS 2011 home server. I was also getting errors regarding the Windows Defender service and Windows Update service not running, which were also incorrect, since the services were running. I would like to get these notifications sorted out, they really are quite a distraction to monitoring, since they seem to be invalid, and they detract from what should be a useful feature.

I am using the released version of WHS 2011. My Dashboard was extremely slow opening today, when it finally opened I found the "Computer Monitoring Error" with the server name in the alerts. I tried to "Refresh" the alerts which also was very slow. The alert was still there after refresh. Finally rebooted the server the alert was gone and the speed was restored.

I'm getting this error too. Even after I reboot WHS2011 it still persists.

I'm also getting the same thing. I just connected a monitor to try and troubleshoot, but It's taking like 10mins just to sign in.

This is probably a dumb question, but do servers ever go into any kind of 'sleep' mode? The reason i ask is it seems the error occurs (for me) during down time (ie 3am 4am).

Update: Ok i think mine is different... i just went into the error logs and noticed I got a dashboard.exe error and a .net error. WTF

I just started getting this error after 3 months. Couldn't find any solution anywhere on the web. So I went into the server and ran the health assessment. The errors were both "non-errors"; I had onboard video disabled because I'm running with a video card, and "no AV installed". Can't do anything about disabled onboard video unless I want to uninstall it (not really), so I stuck Clamav in there because I know it won't hurt the server and rebooted. The error is now gone.

      Should add that I have backed up GPT which my current laptop has installed, just don't have a spare drive to test a full system restore for it at this stage

      thought I'd add here. I'm still running WHS V1, server running under VMware ESXi 5.5, client PC's updated to Win-10 with no issues, including installing the connector on a fresh install. Tested backup and restore to MBR disk with no issues at all. Can't vouch that UEFI/GPT will work successfully direct booted off the restore CD, so that may need to be achieved via a.n.other PC hosting the drive to be restored.

      I recently pulled out my old ex475, slapped in a fresh hd and booted upup. It went right into a recovery mode and then got to this point and stopped. What's my next step? This is a screenshot direct from a debug port vga connection.
    • Does WHS Launchpad need to be running to monitor?
      By KenV99 · Posted
      Hi, I am running WHS2011 and would like to know if in order for a Win10 or Win7 computer to appear in the uptime chart, if only using 'WHS Computers' as a Monitored Source (and not IP), does the computer need to have WHS Launchpad running? The connector is installed on all computers, but I prefer to not run the launchpad on my HTPC. Thanks.
    • Questions on Planning and Preparing for a N54L
      By darkarn · Posted
      Hi guys, after months of looking around for a better home (or mostly personal depending how you look at it  ) storage solution, I have decided to go ahead with a N54L! Here's what I have planned for and prepared so far with some background details on my use cases and setup:   Current Setup Computer(s): 1 Sager NP8170 (HDD changed into a Crucial M550 256GB) Main Storage: 1 HGST 3.5" 3TB Deskstar HDD in a Hotway USB 3.0 external enclosure. Connected to my laptop as Windows 7 local drive via USB 3.0. Backup: 1 3.5" 2TB HDD, 1 3.5" 1TB HDD in a shared PC. Connected to my laptop as Windows 7 network drives over the home network (i.e. PC to router, router to laptop). Router: Asus RT-AC66U (All drives above are formatted in NTFS)   Planned Setup Computer(s): 1 Sager NP8170 (HDD changed into a Crucial M550 256GB) Main Storage: 1 3.5" 2TB HDD, 1 3.5" 1TB HDD in a N54L. (N54L to switch, switch to laptop, switch to router) Backup: 1 HGST 3.5" 3TB Deskstar HDD in a Hotway USB 3.0 external enclosure. Connected to my laptop as Windows 7 local drive via USB 3.0. Router: Asus RT-AC66U (Not sure if should stick with NTFS due to OS choice in the N54L. I prefer not to reformat if possible.)   Use Cases
      1. Storing my data in my HDDs and being able to access them (i.e. NAS) (High priority) 2. Monitoring HDD health with real-time alerts (High priority) 3. Media streaming (in home network mostly, but if can be done ) (Medium priority) 4. Production server for web projects e.t.c. (LAMP setup maybe?) (Medium priority) 5. Media transcoding (then again, I think my devices can handle untranscoded stuff...?) (Low priority)
      6. Creating an environment where I can learn the usage and deployment of servers for fun and for career (yes, I know, this sounds naive at best...) (??? priority)   Items to Get/Prepare N54L itself (need to choose between 250GB HDD/2GB RAM and 500GB HDD/4GB RAM) DDNS Hostname for router (done!) Switch Thumbdrive with OS and BIOS mod if need be (need to decide OS first) Extra Ethernet cables for the setup   Questions Despite looking around at many forums, I am still having some doubts and questions in planning and preparing its deployment. So, I need help in understanding more of the following: 1. Should I be expecting slower read/write speeds than my USB 3.0 connection but faster than those HDDs in the PC? (Expectations) 2. What should I take note of in maintaining such servers instead of my current setup? (Expectations) 3. Will a unmanaged switch do? (Hardware) 4. What PCIe cards should I prepare for? (Hardware) 5. Will I need dual NICs? (Hardware) 6. Will I need an USB 3.0 card on the N54L, or should I just use the USB 3.0 ports on my laptop? (Hardware) 7. Which OS I should go for? Or will hypervisors (i.e. ESXi) be more suited for my use cases? (Amahi, Ubuntu, WHS/Windows 8 are my top choices currently) (Software) 8. If I were to go for a hypervisor, what should I look out for? (Expectations/Software)     I hope this is not too much... Thanks!
