Performed a server reinstallation. Client connectors now do not work. RRS feed

  • Question

  • After performing a WHS reinstallation, all my previous shared folders are recovered. However, my client computers Connector are now in 'gray' state. I can click on it and bring up the Console, but I cannot perform PC backup anymore. Do I have to manually remove all PCs from the Console and re-add them back one by one? I was hoping to retain a history of my PC backups. Thanks.

  • You should be able to run C:\Program Files\Windows Home Server\discovery.exe on each of your clients to rejoin them to your server. If your server isn't updated to the same power pack as your clients, you'll probably have to uninstall/reinstall the connector on the clients during the process.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
