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

Since a few days, I cannot access my whs throught web access : whenever I use domain name *.homeserver.com or IP, I get a certificate error : the certificate has been revoked.
When I look at the iis certificate, the homeserver certificate (given by godaddy) is out of date.
It seemed to me that it was automatically renewed. Did I miss something ?
Thanks in advance !
Sever novice here I'm afraid. I've recently been getting the below error and have no idea what it means or how to solve it, despite its advice. My CrashPlan service which backs up the server to the cloud is also not working currently and I'm wondering if the two are linked. Hardware = new HP ProLiant ML10 Gen9
DFSR Event ID: 2147485861 The DFS Replication service stopped replication on volume C:.
This occurs when a DFSR JET database is not shut down cleanly
and Auto Recovery is disabled. To resolve this issue, back up
the files in the affected replicated folders, and then use the
ResumeReplication WMI method to resume replication.
1. Back up the files in all replicated folders on the volume.
Failure to do so may result in data loss due to unexpected
conflict resolution during the recovery of the replicated folders.
2. To resume the replication for this volume, use the WMI method
ResumeReplication of the DfsrVolumeConfig class.
For example, from an elevated command prompt, type the following command:
wmic /namespace:\\root\microsoftdfs path dfsrVolumeConfig where
volumeGuid="34869E7A-967B-4765-AE39-820525C75E66" call ResumeReplication

First post for me…. I have been viewing you all for a while and a huge fan. I've learned a lot and for the most part fix most or all of my Networking, PC problems and computer related issues. And so thanks for having me.
We love our Aspire-H340 and now especially love it more due to Tonido (Personal Cloud) installed and up and running. We are an iPhone family but not an apple family. Does that make sense? Guess I'm to much of a control freak to switch to Apple.
Tonido allows us all (6 to be exact) to store pictures, view pictures, upload, download and view small videos without using iCloud or a pay service. All wrapped up neatly in the same directory structure as if we were home. Plus I won't mention 4 TB of storage for free but just did.
So to the point.
I have the opportunity to get an academic copy of windows server essentials 2012 R2 with 5 user licenses for $200.
Since the installation of Tonido on the H340 I keep receiving Indexing errors causing WHS Console to report them to me with specific failing hard drive. Tonido is unsupported in WHS so I alone in the web troubleshooting steps. I am thinking it’s the way Tonido handles moving files to and from is doing strange things to WHS Console causing the error not sure though. BTW HDD not failing it just needed repair via WHS console and now all is fine.
So, Can it be done? Can I install Server Essentials 2012 R2 on the H340? Is it feasible or should I just build another box that would run the server software better?? I read on one of the forum threads where a break out cable would be required to get video. I tried installing a video card into the PCIx16 slot but monitor won't power up. (Yes video card was tested and it works) but won't work on the WHS-H340.
I have been having issues with windows media player network service on my windows home server machine. I continually get the following error:
Faulting application name: wmpnetwk.exe, version: 12.0.7601.17514
Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 6.1.7601.18247
Exception code: 0xc0000374
Faulting offset: 0x000000000000c4102
Faulting process id: 0x149c
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmpnetwk.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Windows|system32\ntdll.dll
(I believe) as a result, I cannot successfully access my home server from my Xbox 360, or new DLNA-certified Samsung Blu ray player.
I have tried to run sfc /scannow and it finds no problems. I have verified the service has started and is set to automatically start at boot. I have restarted the server.
Firstly, The server could not be detected at all so I had to edit HOSTS file to add the following line:
now the server is detected but I have the following problem:
I get to the screen where it says "Home Computer Wake Up"
"Do you want to automatically wake up this computer to back it up"
with a yes or no option..
It does not matter which option I choose YES or NO, - the Window freezes up then about 3-4 minutes later I get the following error message "An unknown network error has occurred.
Please verify that your network connection is active and that your Windows Home Server is powered on. Then restart this Wizard."
as an aside, I also put the server in DMZ mode in my router settings.
any advice would be greatly apperciated!
