I have a Fujitsu Siemens Scaleo WHS.
It worked perfectly well for 4 years but suddenly disapperaed from the screens.
All leds indicate things are OK ( HD and network connection) BUT nothing is found when I scan my network...
If I turn the WHS in recovery mode, WHS shows up with an IP adress (192.1468.1.19) and an akward name : minint-******** but recovery procedure aborts almost immediately with a message indicating (translation from French) that "either there is a network problem or a hardware problem with the server".
Any clue as to how to overcome this problem ?
Thanks in advance

I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

Before discarding the server I decided to take all HDs (except the one with the OS) out ; I tried to reinstall, could not either but I had the surprise to "see" my WHS while scanning the network .
I could re_enter in the Scaleo server using the Remote desktop connection ; it took me quite some time to rebuild everything but it worked .
It seems that one of the HDs was defective therefore blocking the reboot/reinstall process without triggering the alarm which is supposed to indicate that a HD creates a problem ....
I write it down in case someone is faced with this sort of problem with a scaleo WHS...
