WHS 2003 Computer tab missing from console RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had difficulty gaining access to the HP EX485 version 3 console starting this past weekend. I began receiving an error message 'WHS experienced a problem with a feature. To open WHS without the feature press Skip (or Retry).' Skip after a minutes long pause gains re-entry, but the Computer tab is missing.  I am able to initiate backups from the WHS desktop icon, however, unable to see them from the desktop. I have 3 drives in the EX485, 2.5TB total and 1.65TB free. Obviously without the Computer tab I cannot initiate any restore.

    I reinstalled WHS twice, removed all of the add-ins, and am still having the problem. I'm on Windows 7 with all latest updates. Don't know what to try next. Suggestions?

  • The solution to this problem was to log on the console with the Options dialog reset selected. I now have a Computer & Backup tab.
