Server asking for password, but PCs connect. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Scene - Server turned on followed by two PCs. On one PC, after checking E-mail, I brought up Home Server Connector and successfully connected to the server- able to check backup and folder status.

    I glanced at the Server monitor and it was asking for "Control-Alt-Delete" combo - gave it the "three finger salute" following which it asked for the password.  At this point, out of curosity and without entering the password, I connected via the second PC


    So - how come.  WHS is asking for the password to complete bootup - I have two PCs happily connected???

  • At the point where it's asking you to press Ctrl-Alt-Del to log in, it's completely operational. No further action is required.

    If you can connect to it using the WHS connector on your client PCs, it's time to shut down the WHS, disconnect keyboard, monitor, and mouse, and restart it.
