Computers can no longer find home server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Got an HP MSS and have been using it successfully for about a year.

    Suddenly, I cannot connect to it from any of my computers. The error message I get indicates the server is not findable on my home network.

    I shut everything down, including my router, and rebooted. Made no difference.
    Changed network cables between server and router. No difference. Changed ports on router.  No difference.

    On my server, the two of the three lights at the bottom of the machine are solid blue. Normal.
    Third light on the far right is blue and blinking.

    Cannot reach via remote desktop, either.

    Suggestions?

  • Hi,

    When you say you rebooted the server, did you do a soft reboot or a hard reset? (The method of doing this is in the HP manual - section 7-something if I remember). There is also the option of checking for the error code by using a paperclip in the pinhole on the server front.

    Let us know what happens and we'll go from there.
