      Newbie here.
      Lights-Out installed correctly on my WHS2011 (Home Server 2011), but if I try to schedule a sleep mode, it says this option is not available.
      It will allow me to schedule a shutdown, but it does not actually work in my tests.
      I also checked from the Start Button and Sleep is grayed out only shut down is available.
      The computer/server is an eMachine running WHS2011 but formerly running Win 7 pro, and it would goto sleep mode on that OS.
      Is WHS2011 blocking this setting ?
      Thanks for anyone's help..

      I am trying to support my church with an issue they have with their WHS 2011 system.  They have an HP desktop pc that was running under 8.1 and backing up fine to their WHS 2011 system.  A week ago, the admin must of accidently hit something to schedule an upgrade to Win 10.  As soon as that happened, the connector would no longer connect to the server.  I uninstalled the connector and tried reinstalling it.  Everything looks like it is working great until the very end and the status bar suddenly starts going backwards until an error comes up that says an error occurred and most of the installation has been deleted.  I have made sure all the updates on both the pc and server have been installed.  I have rebooted both machines.  I have tried a couple of the hotfixes suggested in different forums and I already have them on.  I have the same scenario at home where a machine updated and broke the connector.  I just had to uninstall and reinstall and everything was fine.  I tried copying the connector from my server to the machine at church and got the same results.  I also saw a post to try loading the 2012 server connector on the machine and then delete it...but that didn't help as well.  I am noticing that some of the services are not turning on.  I have turned on all the windows services on both machines, but still no luck.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.  I have spent about 6-7 hours on this issue!

      I have 3 PC's  (2 W10 Pro and 1 W7) and a server running WHS 2011.
      All was well until I updated this PC to new W10 Pro install using an ASUS  Z07-Pro Gamer MB, all other components are the same.
      I had little trouble to install connector and dashboard started up and allowed this PC  to be added as a new user and it shows me as active under user.
      However, when I go to "computers and backup" this PC does not show up in the list of PC's that can be selected.
      I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the connector several times, made sure I have no W10 updates pending, restarted the server all to no avail.
      If I try to run backup from Launchpad I get the message "backup is not setup for this computer".
      This has to be a simple error but its got me stumped - help please.

      I am using WHS 2011. I have two Windows 10 clients. The laptop was upgraded in place from Windows 7 to Windows 10 several months ago and LO works fine there. The desktop was upgraded in place from Windows 7 to Windows Windows 10 yesterday and I can't get its LO service to continue running. If I manually start it, everything looks fine but after several hours the service stops.
      Here are my observations that will hopefully help you determine what the problem is. With the service stopped I log into WHS 2011 and go to the LO Computers tab. For the Win10 desktop all of the items are grayed out. Back at the desktop, I right click the LO lightbulb and select About. It shows me connected to the home server. If I click the home server link it takes me to the Explorer view of the server's folders. Both client PCs are running 1.6.1.2408. What should I do to get LO working properly on this Wn 10 client?

      Hi,
      I swear I am in the very slow process of upgrading to Windows Server Essentials 2012 R2.  In the meantime, I am dependent on my old WHS 2011 which is in the old HP MEdiasmart server.  It continues to work well as a network drive, and as a means to stream to my various OSMC players throughout the house.  Recently however, I cannot connect to the shared folders on the lone Mac in the house.  Despite being able to login through the connector, when I try to click "Shared Folders" or the "Go --> Connect to Server" method, I cannot login.  I get the smb://myservername then get a login prompt, but regardless of whether I try Admin, or my name and password, or even "Guest", I get rejected.  I tried re-installing the Connector, trying to login through lots of methods, restarting the server and the Mac, etc. but no dice.  Any reason why this wouldn't work??  It's frustrating.  I like to connect through my mac so I can move items between my various Apple Devices and the server (Calibre to transfer my books to my iPad, for example).
       
      Thanks for any help you can offer, I'll try anything!

    • Apologies if I'm being stupid, but I'm having great trouble understanding how Lightsout backup and the Server Essentials 2012 backup work together (or fight with each other). I find the Lightsout documentation on this very unclear, and various threads have left me no wiser. I'd appreciate some help! Here's the setup: Lightsout is running nicely on the server. Before backups were set up, I established that the server hibernated when the clients were switched off. The server woke up when a client was powered up. (This behaviour broke when backups were set up.) The server is Essentials 2012, with a number of client laptops: a mix of Windows 7, 8 & 10. The Essentials backup window is 22:00 - 07:00. No backup settings are currently made in Lightsout. Here's what I'd like to achieve: At the end of the working day all the clients are put to sleep or hibernate (or switched off completely, I don't care which). Ten minutes after that, Lightsout hibernates the server. Sometime during the night (22:00 - 07:00) the server wakes up, then wakes up the various clients in turn, backs them up, and puts them back to sleep / hibernate / shutdown (I don't care which). Here's what actually happens (when I look at the uptime chart the next morning): At the end of the day (about 17:15) the clients are put to sleep / hibernate. (I tell the team not to shut down their client laptops because I assume the server can't wake a completely shut down client - is that correct?) The server does not hibernate. Approximately 90 minutes after the clients were put to sleep / hibernate, they all wake up simultaneously (around 18:45, but I don't know why this happens). The clients then stay awake all night. Later, from 22:00, some of the backups take place (but not all of them). The backups are spread wide apart in the 22:00 - 07:00 window with lots of time when nothing is going on at all. The clients do not go back to sleep / hibernate after their backups. ...can anyone suggest what combination of settings I should be using to get the desired behaviour? Here are the sort of things that are confusing me, but I can't find definitive answers (and each experiment I do takes 24 hours to give any results!): I know I can specify clients' individual backup times in Lightsout, but I don't know how long a client's backup will take, so I could have backups overlapping each other and causing a traffic jam. Should I worry about this? If I set Lightsout backups, what do I set for the Essentails backup window? What if it's not long enough to get all the backups done? If I make settings in the Lightsout backup dialog do I have to complete everything in that dialog box? Does this make the Essentials 2012 backup settings redundant? What about the Essentials 22:00 - 07:00 backup window, does that matter any more? I tried setting client backup times in Lightsout with an end action of 'sleep'. The backups didn't happen at all and clients all spontaneously went to sleep in the middle of the working day (the server / clients clocks all match, I checked). Can Lightsout wake up a client laptop that is completely shut down? Thanks for reading this long post and sorry if these seem like stupid questions. I already have WHS2011 / Lightsout running perfectly on another setup (where my backups take place during the day), but nocturnal backups are a new level of complexity for me!

To the best of my recollection, I never connected both of my backup drives to the server at the same time,  For test purposes, I just initiated a recovery (using the WHS Installation Disk) with each of them hooked up.  The one that has been offsite and the one that backed up last night were both found by the "Repair an existing installation" procedure.  Perhaps I'm misreading your clarification.
    • Please check if task scheduler is still working. If not use this tool here https://repairtasks.codeplex.com/ If that does not help you may try to reinstall WHS Connector.
    • 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?
