Client backups fail to complete with 1% and client server service stopped RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello
    I set up WHS 2011 on a new SSD drive. After installation I moved all shared folders onto my secondary drive, a SATA drive. The SSD ist intended for the OS and some programs only.

    When I want to backup my machines, they never complete successfully. Mostly, they stop at 1%, after that I discover in services.msc that the client backup service isn't running anymore. When I look at the dashboard, my computers are listed with "Backup status not set up" or "unknown", although I did this before.

    What could be the problem? No problems before with WHS on a SATA drive, problem occured with this SSD drive.

  • It's a bit of an overkill using an SSD for a WHS Server - it might be better used elsewhere. Having said that, there is no fundamental reason why it should not work. Did you do a clean install on a blank disk or did you do some form of cloning from your other SATA disk? What is the size of your SSD?

  • Yes, I know!... but it's running faster now...

    It's a 120GB, and I did a clean install, 3 times already (always a clean install).

  • Then that's likely to be your problem (not sure how you managed to install when you do not meet the minimum hardware requirement):

    System Requirements:

    • 1.4 GHz x64 processor.
    • 2 GB RAM
    • At least one 160 GB hard drive.

  • I managed with using an USB stick with a cfg.ini file on it, whit this contents:

    [WinPE]
    ConfigDisk=1
    CheckReqs=0
    WindowsPartitionSize=MAX

  • So you told it not to check for the minimum requirement - at your risk and is probably the cause of your problem.

  • Yes, that's true, but in a Home Server Forum I read from different people who got to work this solution successfully...
