Corrupt Install After Installing Power Pack 3 And Updates

3 posts in this topic

hi all

first time poster so go gentle :P

i built my own custom whs v1 the other day and been trying to perfect it for the past few days.

all was working fine until i installed power pack 1, and then the live domain stopped working, and i tried to uninstall the domain name to the server and recreate a new one but threw up errors all the time. so i left it and went on.

after installing power pack 2 tried the domain again and still newt. and then power pack 3 and still nothing.

last night transfering nearly 1tb of .avi's on to a new drive that was recently formatted and configured for whs v1, so i thought do it over night wont be a problem. when i came down this morning to find out whs was off, went to power up and it threw error after error after error.

so i plugged in an old hard drive had win 7 ult on, and i did a bit of snooping, seems like the whole thing got corrupted.

%driveletter%:\system volume information\mount point manager remote database - is corrupt and unreadable

then another one i caught was "ehtray.exe" %driveletter%:\is corrupt and unreadable please reinstall whs

anyone else ever had this same problem?

as my current setup is win 7 ult media center enabled for xbox 360 with just over 1tb films on and also a win 2003 server with just over 1tb films on the exact same ones so i can share with family and friends.

wanted whs for the simplicity of it in one area and the web remote access part as well.

sorry for the long post

thanks

Steve

Power disruptions can cause those types of problems.

Putting a UPS inline with your equipment will help protect

your investment.

Best to reformat the drive (not quick format).

    • Well, what are you upgrading from?  If it's Windows Home Server, are you using its client backup feature?  And if so, is this something you want to continue? What do you use your server for, and are there any new capabilities you want to take advantage of?
    • OK here is my problems I have an old dell 1430 server with a 256mb ssd drive and 2 3MB hdds. the ssd drive is where I would install win 10 . what do I have to do to make this (upgrade) to win 10 go as smoothly as "possible"? I can put the OS on a hdd also this is a store bought version of win 10 home.
    • I wouldn't go for Storage Spaces - there have been reports of issues when a disk goes bad (and I too have had that sort of problem). You can go down the RAID route if you have the hardware controller to support it - don't go for software RAID. Alternatively, have a look at Stablebit Drivepool which give you the flexibility of duplication at the folder level or across all storage. If you have data that doesn't need to be protected, you don't have to sacrifice the space for duplication of that folder. 
    • Like I said, you won't get the combined (aggregate) bandwidth to a single destination.   Torrenting makes multiple outgoing and can receive multiple incoming connections to and from multiple seeders and leechers (behaving more like the load-balanced scenario) in the best-case scenario, so it's one of the few applications that scale fairly well with WAN load-balancing, and if you're just downloading data, the torrent application can reassemble the whole torrent from the randomly received chunks from each seeder.  Torrent was almost designed to benefit from WAN load-balancing because of the way the P2P network was conceived. ...but that wouldn't work for streaming media or online gaming or VoIP where there's no mechanism to deal with out-of-order packets being sent and received, or the fact that it's still asymmetrically routed -- in that instance, you're still limited to the bandwidth of a single connection, you can just make more of them at a time on different paths.   802.3ad or LACP (Dynamic Link Aggregation) requires switching and routing hardware that's also LACP-compliant in order for it to work, but in that case, would be more like the aforementioned ISP IMUX connection than WAN load-balancing.   Your SpeedTest results are probably from burstable traffic over one connection, because a single SpeedTest run will only use one connection during the course of that test run, which is why it only shows a single public IP address. Sustained bandwidth testing with something like iPerf will show a more accurate picture.   Speedify would pretty much have to be tunneling all traffic as the "first hop" and reassembling traffic before going back out to the public Internet so that their VPN endpoint becomes your new public IP address out on the Internet; in essence becoming an ISP over an ISP -- if that's what it's actually doing.  While that may solve one issue, it would probably cause a drastic increase in latency to do so, and I doubt it would support streaming media very well.
    • Hi, Thanks for the reply. I understand what you mean but then that's like having 2 DC's having DHCP to issue IP in case one goes down, so both DHCP scopes would have to issue same IP address to same client or they would run out of addresses. But anyway thanks for clarifying, I was getting really frustrated about not being able to solve this because I was understanding that the clients would not leave the network when the DC is down and authentication takes place at RODC. Thanks a lot.
