    • The "Holy Grail": WMC on 2011 servers, now is possible !!!
      By Terry (WGS) · Posted
      Hi Can you please post the content of the walkthrough here? The link you posted is to a closed forum, requiring registration, so right now, this looks like link spam. Sounds exciting, but I'd be grateful if you could support our community too! Regards Terry
    • Data Hard Drives Don't Appear in Dashboard
      By Sailwithed · Posted
      Something weird is happening with my WHS 2011 installation.  I have a very simple installation.  My C: drive is a 120 GB SSD, and I have two 3TB WD Red mirrored hard drives for data.  The installation is more than a year old and has worked fine. Now, when I open Dashboard and click on the Server Folders tab, I see all of my shared files and their locations.  However, the Free Space column for ALL folders displays Unknown, not the actual amount of free space.  Additionally, when I click on the Hard Drives tab, I see ONLY the 120GB C:\ drive, and NEITHER of the data hard drives appear.  I've tried rebooting the server, to no avail. All of the data is where it should be in the shared folders.  I have roughly 2.5 TB of data, mirrored across the two WDs, and everything seems to be working fine.  I'm concerned, however, with the strange behavior of the drives not appearing in Server Folders and Hard Drives.  Any ideas? Thanks, Ed

    • Cant Connect Lan Via Launchpad
      By wimkapteyn · Posted
      This is a problem that plagued me on Windows 7 clients, Windows 8 clients , Windows 8.1 clients and now on WIndows 10 clients as well. Sometimes though it seems that all is well and some of the connected PC's can launch the launchpad and get connected. But then other PC's do get a disconnect. I ahve tried to have more user accounts, but to no avail. As it is an intermittent problem (more often than not) I suspect the root cause is somewhere in the undelying connection between WHS and al of its clients. Every client has received  the newest NET and MS updates, so that is not a problem. Every PCclient has its AntiVirus updated (I use several, but that does not make any difference at all), and has its MS firewall ON. Now I have put every PC and the WHS in a homegroup. I can see the WHS in the network, connect to shares, instigate a remote desktop connection from the client to the server. Probably , as it is end of life, MS does not bother anymore. Suggestion is then to abandon WHS as I have doen before on a different home installation and get along with at least 8.1 (and file history ON). So in short : unless MS does something about this issue, re-installing clients or servers does not help.   Cheers, A not so happy WHS user, Wim
