WHS "threw an exception" error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an HP Data Vault running Windows Home Server.  I'm not very proficient in using WHS but have been using this to back up 4 PC's on my network.  Today, when I logged into the server admin console, I got an error screen that had a lot of info (but does not allow me to copy/paste so will type in as best I can):

    The type initializer for 'Microsoft.WindowsServerSolutions.Common.Support' threw an execption

    Server stack trace:

       at 'Microsoft.WindowsServerSolutions.Common.Support.LogException (Exception e, String messageBoxText)

       at Microsoft.HomeSever.Controls.QSM.QSMMgr.GetStorageSize()

       at HpmssService.HpmssServiceRemote.TotalDiskSpace()

       at System.Runtime.Remoting.Messaging.StackBuilderSink._PrivateProcessMessage(IntPtr md, Object[] args, Object server, Int32 methodPtr, Boolean fExecuteInContext, Object[]& outArgs)

       at System.Runtime.Remoting.Messaging.StackBuilderSink.PrivateProcessMessage(RuntimeMethodHandle md, Object[] args, Object server, Int32 methodPtr, Boolean fExecuteInContext, Object[]& outArgs)

       at System.Runtime.Remoting.Messaging.StackBuilderSink.SyncProcessMessage(IMessage msg, Int32 methodPtr, Boolean fExecuteInContext)

    There's more information provided under a heading of Exception rethrown at [0] that if it is inportant, I can type in later if needed. As best I can tell, the Data Vault seems to be working normally but I'm not certain of that.

    Any idea what's going on with this error?

  • The "Windows Home Server Settings - Toolkit 1.1 - Event viewer" lets you copy and paste if you can find the error there. Should not be too hard to find.

    Exact same error here.

    I also noticed a lot of these errors in the system log:

    "The device, \Device\Harddisk3, is not ready for access yet."

    I disconnected an external eSATA drive that I recently added, after that a reboot of my homeserver seemed to fix the problem.
