Server reinstall - now cannot log in
My X510 would not connect suddenly and was unresponsive. After a couple of hard resets I got the red health light on, so tried to do a restore. This did not work so I figured it somehow could not see the disks, so I took them out and put a new spare disk in and went through the restore procedure again. This time it worked and all looked good. Now to reinstall connector software on my PC. So it found it okay and downloaded the bits it needed, then asked for the password. What? Have not set one yet.
Now I have a box saying An error occured. This operation cannot be completed at this time. I have tried the old password - which it cannot be as I did a restore, and blank, and admin 0- nothing works. I have a fresh install that I cannot connect to. I have spent all afternoon on this and am out of ideas.

HP MediaSmart EX470
By Doug McDermott
Anyone know of a modern day use for HP MediaSmart EX470 hardware? I have an old HP MediaSmart EX470. The hardware is fine, but I can no longer connect to the console because my wife destroyed the old Vista computer I was using and all of my remaining computers are Windows 10. Since the hardware is fine, I would like to re-use it if possible. I'm primarily interested in using it as a music server to connect to Sonos, and a video/photo server to connect to playstation and other computers around the house. The original backup functionality was nice, but I don't need that anymore. Does anyone know of a way to rebuild these things for modern day use? Windows 10 compatible use?
WHS suspending whilst PC's are active
Hi, I have Lights Out installed on a WHS 2012 R2 Essentials and a Windows 8.1 PC and Win 7 laptop. I have the agents installed on both machines with the options within Lights Out to monitor shares and PC's. However the WHS seems to sleep after around 45 mins (see screenshot below which shows pattern) of being on even if I am reading/writing files to the server. I have the default action as suspend after 60 mins in Lights Out which I assume suspends the WHS if there is no active connected PC after this time.
Please could someone advise how I solve this as it is making LIghts Out effectively pointless and frustrating. I have all power options in WHS set to never so I know it is not this.
Screenshot below shows that the server was switched on at 9:17.55 and then was forced to suspend at 10:02.34 despite the PC accessing the WHS.
Bare Metal Backup WHS v1 - Wizard Cannot Find my Home Server
I am having an issue with completing a bare metal restore using WHS v1 and would like to tap into your collective wisdom.
I have a Lenovo T430 laptop running the Windows 7 (64). The HDD just failed, and I have installed a new HDD of the same size and brand. i have an eight day old image of the old drive that I would like to install onto the new drive.
When I boot from the WHS client restore disk, the wizard cannot find the home server. I have copied the "Windows Home Server Drivers for Restore" onto a USB drive and uploaded them. The wizard still cannot find the home server. I am assuming that I am missing the driver for the network card on the T430.
In reviewing these threads on the topic, i have seen a file that was compiled by Drashna mentioned, but i am unable to locate it.
Does anyone have a workaround for this problem? I would appreciate any suggestions. Please type slowly. I was a history major and not all that technical.
