Log Collector RRS feed

  • Question

  • ?I have Vail set up properly, but have some issues. However, before I can
    file a bug, I need to install the Windows Server Solutions Log Collector on
    Vail. I have it downloaded to my desktop machine, but can't figure out how
    to get online from WHS Vail Server.
     
    I can succeed in logging onto https://computercare7.homeserver.com; however,
    I cannot seem to get to IE in order to download the Log Collector. Nor can I
    figure out how to install it from my desktop.
     
    The problem I'm having is that Vail will no longer back itself up. As you
    can see, it was backing up beautifully from September 28 through October 3,
    then from October 3 through 7, it was unsuccessful. From thereon until
    today, there have been only incomplete backups. When I try a manual backup,
    WHS Vail goes through the backup through 100% and then says it's "completing
    backup". Shortly thereafter, it tells me the backup is Incomplete.
     
    When I view Backup Details, it shows the Operating System backup was
    unsuccessful.
     
    What is even stranger, is that although WHS Vail will show when Updates are
    available for my desktop machine, it doesn't show any type of alert that
    something's wrong with WHS Vail system backup!

    Oh, well, it looks like I can't attach snippets to Forums, even though I can
    read them as NNTP.

    Just copy the install file to a Vail share, login to the server desktop, and install it from there.
