New Ssd System Question

6 posts in this topic

Hi, I just built a new rig consisting of an ASRock z68 pro gen3 board, I7 2600k, 16 GB G.skill RipJaws memory, a Crucial C300 128 GB SSD running win7 ultimate. Right now I'm getting a 7.8 WEI score and it is really fast fast fast. My question is if Install the WHS client on this machine will it degrade any performance?

Thanks, John

IMO it should not effect your performance, if it did you would see a performance drop on systems with traditional hdd.

You could always install it and rerun the performance test and report back to the forum.

Thanks for the reply. How about start up times. I like the way I start up in a few seconds now. When I tried to map a drive on my server it really slowed down my start up drastically. Is there a difference if I use the connector disk to install the client of just map to a folder on the server? I don't mean to be confusing, right now I can still access my server through windows file explorer, it takes a while but I can get there. I had to enter my user name and password at first but then it does get there. My old system with the client installed was much faster viewing files.

Is there a difference if I use the connector disk to install the client of just map to a folder on the server?

Yes and No. You can map the WHS Shares the way you described, But, with the connector software installed you can access them via the LaunchPad or Dashboard. This is assuming you are using WHS2011. The difference between the LaunchPad and DashBoard, LP is for normal users, while DB is for the administrator.

You should also be able to see the WHS Shares via Windows Explorer under the Network section.

Also, you are not alone when it comes to slow response to items showing up or connecting to your server's shares. Here is a thread you might look at. I believe it may address your problem. Here is the

I don't mean to be confusing, right now I can still access my server through windows file explorer, it takes a while but I can get there. I had to enter my user name and password at first but then it does get there. My old system with the client installed was much faster viewing files.

This can be a network issue, and can be addressed in a couple of ways. Let me ask to clarity your situation. Are you setting up a WHS network with WHS2011 and at least one Win7 client system on your network?

I would recommend the installation of the connector software. Without the connector software you will not be able to perform client backups using the WHS backup system. Additionally, your WHS is not intended to be administered like a normal MS server. The DB software is the primary means to administer your WHS. It is from the DB that you will add users, and administer WHS Shares.

Once you have this all worked out I would suggest directing your specific WHS questions to the forum which best describes your situation. If you have a problem with the installation of the connector software, then address it to the WHS2011 - Installation forum.

It sounds like you have your Win7 install finished and now you need to get the whole WHS network working together.

I hope I addressed your questions sufficiently.

Good Luck...

Thanks for the information. I'm using WHS 2003 and have Win7 clients only, and one Win8 preview laptop which is working fine with the connector software. I'm going to install the connector on my new machine and report back if there are any problems.

    • My WHS v1 (home build) starting misbehaving and finally needed a new system disk.
      After lots of threads, trial and errors, AF and non-AF drives, and lack of the Server Reinstallation choice it has finally progressed.
      Weeks of frustration. My recent attempts proceeded well but all ended up without the rebuilding of the Storage Pool (6 drives).
      The drives are detected and show up as "not added" in Server Storage and as "non managed" in Disk Management.
      There is no C:\fs on the SYS volume.
      It appears that the RebuildPrimary stage of the reinstallation, mentioned by some posters, was not successful. Has anyone found a way to force the rebuilding of the Storage Pool on reinstallation?
      I have tried X: Files v1.5.5 and the original Microsoft Disk with the same outcome. [My next step will be to migrate the "shares" and "folders" manually - it would have be quicker to have done this initially.]
       
    • Hi, I can use all feature using the connector software in my local network. But when on the road, I connect via xxx.homeserver.com. Login works, can access my shared folders, but when I want to access the WHS 2011 Server Dashboard or my WHS 2011 Outlook, I got an error like this: The Computer can't connect with the Remotedesktop-Gatewayserver. Contact your network admin. (translated from german) . On an Windows 7 Home and on a 7 Pro Computer this worked. The same problem happens on my Windows 10 tablet. Only local working with the connector software. Windows 10 is version 1607. Any suggestions what this is?
    • Hello All, I've tried searching on the forum but was unable to find a good walk through on moving a whs V1 to new hardware. Many years ago now I built a server out of an old dell gx270.  That box is really showing its age and is having problems.  Currently the system will boot but it no longer has video and I have to remote into it to see anything. If memory serves me correctly there was a way to save a backup of the server data. Can I simply make this backup of the data and switch out the server hardware reattach the drives and load the backup? How do I get the existing computer backups to move across?   Thanks for any help you can provide.
    • I have the same problem.  I will try the suggestion of repairing "task scheduler" I'm also considering upgrading to Windows Server 2012 R2   See my post 
    • Thanks for the input; and yes, I am using Stablebit, a totally awesome pooling tool if I may say so.
