WHS Connector can't connect to Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • After reading several posts and trying various fixes (including modifying my Hosts file) I am now restoring a prior backup from a few days ago. There is nothing wrong with any DNS stuff as all 6 systems can ping each other using names except bad_client to whserver. I can ping using IP address. For the record the bad_client is 64bit Windows 7 and the whserver is a rock solid Tyan Tank with @ 10TB. The bad_client may have swallowed some new updates of various kinds a day prior to the problem. This included a java update, Firefox update, Avira update to NEW version 9, and possibly more.

    I will repeat the upgrades as they naturally occur and this time pay strict attention to the little green icon. If the damage occurs again I will report in detail.

    I just want to thank Microsoft once again for providing us with a disaster recovery system which has literally saved my butt at least 5 times since beta testing began.   Now if I can get a 64bit version of WHS I would be oh so ever grateful :)

  • I have now determined  uninstalling Avira will cause the WHS connector damage. This is unacceptable and I will be contacting Avira now.

    I have reproduced the problem twice.

    According to TechRadar, the next release of WHS (code named Vail) is 64-bit only.  Check the article here for more details.
