      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

Computer Monitoring Error

8 posts in this topic

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.

    • 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.
