Windows Home server disconnects, knocks off network traffic RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have installed several servers and clients, but this one has me beat.  This one particular machine was rebooted during it's initial backup, and now, I can't get it to complete any backup.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled the client, I have removed the machine from the home server and rebooted both.  The home server recognizes it as a new machine when I add it back.  I have also ran a chkdsk /f /r and it found no errors.  I ran a defrag, just in case, and nothing.  When it goes to backup on an initial install, it get's to anywhere from 46% - 49% then the connector disconnects, and the laptop loses network connectivity.  When I reboot, and try to back it up again, it gets to 36% everytime and disconnects from the server, and shuts off network connectivity to the client.  Also, there are 3 other clients that connect to this server, with no problems during the backup process.


    Any ideas anyone?

  • What is your NIC? Have you tried getting the latest driver for it?

  • It's a Broadcom 57XX Integrated controller.  Yes, I downloaded the latest drivers.  Doesn't seem to help.

  • Are you able to find any info regarding what is causing this in the event viewer or the backup logs?
