Unable to reinstall connector RRS feed

  • Question

  • After using WHS 2011 for a while, I found I had hardware issues causing blue screens. I finally have a stable server and client backups stopped working. The odd part was I could still see the shares on the server and use printing at the server. I deleted all the client backups from the server after rebuilding the database and installed the connector to re-install it. When I run the connector install as administrator I get the error that it is unable to install due to an unspecified error. What are my options? I also reinstalled using the latest server image to no avail.

  • I ended up re-installing and not using an image. This ended up deleting all my share data because it was on the same physical drive on another partition. I made a backup of those outside of normal backups. Whatever the problem was is on the server side because it works again. I also have to reconfigure users and shares. Hopefully issues are resolved due to fixing blue screen and power drop conditions.
