  • Question

  • I noticed that the whs indicator was grey approx 2 hours ago.  On checking server, found it stuck on a bsod stating: - Invalid Process Detach Attempt - 0x00000006.  Rebooted several times, but within minutes, it happened  again.  Rebooted one last time & set it to last known good configuration.   This has apparently kept the bsod at bay & the taskbar indicator is now green.

    However, on attempting to access the whs console, keep getting a dialogue box stating: - "the computer cannot connect to your home server.  check your network connection & ensure your home server is powered on. If your home server was recently restarted, please try again in a few minutes".

    No hardware or software has been installed recently.

    Any advice will be most appreciated.

  • A Stop 0x06 error points to a problem with Hardware or Drivers.  If you say nothing has been changed recently - including automatic windows updates, then I would suspect you have a hardware problem.  I personally would start with a full memory test using www.memtest86.com:
    bootable CD:
     http://www.memtest86.com/memtest86-3.5.iso.zip

    If that comes back clean perhaps you have a problem with one of your hard drives.  Perhaps investigate using this add-in before running more dedicated manf testing tools:

  • Thanks for the links Al.  Memtest ok on server.  Can't use the add-in yet as cannot access the whs console.  Checked via Win Explorer (server 2003) & it can't see my lan.  However, can access the net via server so nic is ok.  Server has been running since it's last reboot this morning with no bsod so far.  Accessing via 2003 is no problem except for no lan.

    What I cannot understand is that all machines connected to whs is showing network healthy but cannot access console from any machine...still stating the message posted above every time I try.  If server network access is down, shouldn't the whs indicator show network critical or even be greyed out?

    Checked router, switches, cables, & all ok.  Each machine can access net & also rdp into each other....lan ok, but whs not showing on network in any machine.

    Have a total of 10tb storage with close to 6tb used.  if all else fails, Will a server re-install work without any loss of data?

  • Tried everything I could think of, but still failed to get access to the whs console from any client.  Applied a server re-installation which went smoothly with no problems experienced.  Applied all updates & server is up to date as of now.

    All device drivers installed & up to date, & all drives recognised.  Had to reinstall connector software on clients & all now have access via the console.

    Only problem experiencing is one I do not know how to resolve.  3 drives are showing as not added & 1 missing.   The drive that's showing as missing is a wierd one......It is on an IDE channel & set as master(as originally done) with the server backup disk on the secondary channel.  The backup drive is seen but not the master (yes, have all jumpers set correctly).

    As for the 3 not added, cannot understand why this as happened as whs recognised all the other drives.  In server storage tab, it will not let me add them or remove them, stating file conflicts.  Not really bothered about losing the data on these drives as I can always add it back later (just films), as the folders I wish to save are backed up on the backup drive.

    What would be the best way to get these drives back in use?

    note:  before reinstalling server, ran av & no problems were found, so still find the original problem a weird one.

    Thanks again Al. Just installed the add-in. Pretty neat. Only problem is that it sees all 13 drives & reports no problems with drives (see last post).

  • Problem cropped up again, so did a clean fresh installation as I had backed up the data I wanted on an external drive.  Lan & whs ok overnight as server had backed up all clients.  At approx 11am this morning, taskbar icon turned grey on the desktop I was using, so checked the server, same problem.

    Shutdown server & lan.  Disconnected all cables, switches, & modem.  Stripped down server & rebuilt after a thorough spring clean(not that it really needed it), & added a new clean fresh hard drive as a system drive (originally used a 250gb, new one 500gb).

    Reset router & reset all dhcp reservations for lan.  Used new ethernet cabling & rebooted lan....so far, so good.  All machines can access the net & also rdp into each other.

    Booted server & commenced a new fresh installation.  Again so far, so good.  Unfortunately, at approx 17:14 this evening, same problem cropped up & currently doing yet another fresh install.

    My WHS has been running constantly since it's original build date of Oct 2007 (asides from maintainence downtime, i.e., spring cleaning, adding further drives,cpu & ram upgrading) & have not experienced any major problems.

    Current system: -
    Asus M3A78 Pro motherboard
    AMD 9950 quad core cpu
    2x 2gb ram (ran memtest - all ok)
    Geoforce 9500GT 512mb GPU
    Jeantech 700w psu
    LG DVD-RW
    9x 1tb HD's
    1x 1.5tb HD
    1x 500gb HD
    1x 400gb HD
    1x 250gb HD

    Before the problem cropped up this evening, did install the homeserver SMART add-in last night, & it reported all drives healthy.

    Also, before adding any of the above drives to the storage pool or adding the connector software to clients, updated the server via Windows Update & also made sure that all device drivers, chipset drivers installed.  Checked via device manager & no problems shown.

    Is it at all possible that an update has disrupted the server?  Have tried everything I could think of & now at a loss on how to proceed next if the current installation should fail.

    At this point, I think you should do a New Installation with only 1 hard drive connected (obviously a drive that is not part of your current server installation) and install only necessary drivers (NIC and storage) (and don't install any add-ins or applications), then leave it on for a while and see what happens.

  • Thanks Kariya21.  The last installation has completed & so far looking good.  Should it fail again, will do as you suggested.
