Sidebar Gadget For Monitoring Of Whs Server

3 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I've been searching the net high and low for a simple sidebar gadget (Windows 7 or Vista) that shows basic data from my WHS box : uptime, cpu load, disk space etc. I can find tons of gadgets that display this data for the client pc but I have not been able to find any that show data from the server. I found an earlier thread on this (http://forum.wegotserved.com/index.php/topic/794-whs-sidebar-gadget/page__p__4176__hl__%2Bdvue3+%2Bpro__fromsearch__1#entry4176) which did not seem to identify any usable gadgets apart from "dVUE3 Pro" which however is not tracable anywhere anymore not even on the author's website.

It's kind of odd that apparently such a gadget does not exist, when gadgets for all other kinds of useless purposes (search this, search that) are abundant. Simple tools such as Microsoft's PSInfo can extract the data easily from the WHS to it's really just a matter of showing the data in a gadget.

Anyone know of any solution?

I don't have a solution, but I would be very interested in such a gadget.

    • Temp Files Created By Server Backup
      By Dave Marchant (WGS) · Posted
      It sort of makes sense as the oldest tmp file corresponds to the oldest backup. I agree that it is not good design. I don't fancy a BSOD just at the moment as about to go away on holiday so need to have the server working reliably while I am away or I get no email  Could be one for the MVP's to feed back into Microsoft for a comment.

      Thank you for confirming that Dave! I don't have the full gui installed so I couldn't do a Disk Cleanup on mine. I wondered if that would work to get rid of them. Guess not. I suspect they may be some kind of mount point for the vhd that is created right at the beginning of backup and deleting them causes havoc later when Server Backup tries to do incremental backups using the old mount point. My backups "exist" forever since they are on 1TB and in no danger of running out of space. It occurred to me that maybe they get deleted when a backup gets removed. In any case it's a pretty piss poor design to leave critical ".tmp" files in Windows\Temp if you ask me. If you really want to test things at your end, delete them In any case at least I know what has been causing the random BSODs I get every few months since I installed WSE2012 and what to do not to get them.  
    • Moving from V1 to Essentials

      Sorry, the backups are not compatible with WHS 2011 or any of the Server Essentials variants. There is no easy workaround either.  You don't give any indication in the spec of the V1 box so difficult to say whether Essentials will run on it. I beleive the limitation may possibly be RAM if you are thinking of one of the original HP Home Servers.

      So I have a new WSS box arriving tomorrow.  Are the backups made with V1 compatible with Essentials?  Is it possible to migrate them to the new box?  Any suggestions on what to do with the V1 box?  It it possible to load Essentials on it (legality aside)?

      Curious, I have just checked on my 2012E (not R2) and I also have a load of tmp files in C:\Windows\Temp. This is clearly a side effect of the Essentials server backup and I currently have 800 of them. The only space they will be taking up is slots in the directory files and so there is no danger of running out of disk space.  I am going to see if Disk Cleanup will tidy them up without messing up the server.  EDIT: Disk Cleanup doesn't seem to touch them - they are still there.
