    • Windows 10 Server Not Suspend
      By Lamplugh · Posted
      Apologies for the delay in responding but I have been trying out a number of options all to no avail. As Andrew suggested I have disabled Wake on Pattern Match, (It was previously enabled.) The Power Power Management options were already ticked, so I have tried unticking them all waiting 24 hours and then reticking. Wake on Magic Packet is currently enabled, I don't know if I should change that. I don't seem to have the Shutdown Wake on Lan option but I do have WOL & Shutdown Link Speed which is set to 10 Mbs First. I still feel it is some W10 feature as the new system seems dead keen on talking to Microsoft at every opportunity. I have obviously tried to switch as many of these off as I know about. Any suggestion welcome as I don't really want my server on effectively 24/7.  
    • Temp Files Created By Server Backup
      By Dave Marchant (WGS) · Posted
      It sort of makes sense as the oldest tmp file corresponds to the oldest backup. I agree that it is not good design. I don't fancy a BSOD just at the moment as about to go away on holiday so need to have the server working reliably while I am away or I get no email  Could be one for the MVP's to feed back into Microsoft for a comment. 
    • Temp Files Created By Server Backup
      By glorp · Posted
      Thank you for confirming that Dave! I don't have the full gui installed so I couldn't do a Disk Cleanup on mine. I wondered if that would work to get rid of them. Guess not. I suspect they may be some kind of mount point for the vhd that is created right at the beginning of backup and deleting them causes havoc later when Server Backup tries to do incremental backups using the old mount point. My backups "exist" forever since they are on 1TB and in no danger of running out of space. It occurred to me that maybe they get deleted when a backup gets removed. In any case it's a pretty piss poor design to leave critical ".tmp" files in Windows\Temp if you ask me. If you really want to test things at your end, delete them In any case at least I know what has been causing the random BSODs I get every few months since I installed WSE2012 and what to do not to get them.  
    • Moving from V1 to Essentials
      By Dave Marchant (WGS) · Posted
      Sorry, the backups are not compatible with WHS 2011 or any of the Server Essentials variants. There is no easy workaround either.  You don't give any indication in the spec of the V1 box so difficult to say whether Essentials will run on it. I beleive the limitation may possibly be RAM if you are thinking of one of the original HP Home Servers.    
    • Moving from V1 to Essentials
      By fasttimes · Posted
      So I have a new WSS box arriving tomorrow.  Are the backups made with V1 compatible with Essentials?  Is it possible to migrate them to the new box?  Any suggestions on what to do with the V1 box?  It it possible to load Essentials on it (legality aside)?
