Windows Home Server 2011 Connector - Broken on Win 7 x64 System RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have one system on my home network,WIn 7 x64, that previously was connected to WHS2011 but something fell apart recently.

    When rebooting, the WHS Connector pops up asking to fix the connection. 

    I get "Please wait while your server is located" followed by "Wizard cannot find your server".

    I've tried "Search again" numerous times but no luck.  If I try to find the server manually, I enter in the WHS server name and after a period of time get "Operation cannot be completed at this time".

    I can see the WHS from this system - if I double click on it using WIndows Explorer, the browser Connect screen comes up.  I download the connector software, run it and get "This computer is already connected to another server" and am told to uninstall the Conenctor first.

    If I try to uninstall the WHS Conenctor, a window pops up with "gatehring requested infromation" followed by a brief status bar that fills quickly then nothing.  WHS Connector is still installed.

    I've tried unistalling WHS Connector via Safe Mode but the same result.

    I have also tried renaming the system but all of the above still occur.  Same if I try under another account name with Admin privledges.

    Any ideas?

  • I'm definitely not an expert but you could try going to >program files>Windows Home Server directory and try running the discovery.exe file.

  • This brings up the exact same dialogue box as above, with the same results;

    "Please wait while your server is located" followed by "Wizard cannot find your server".

    "Search again" = nothing. 

    Find the server manually = "Operation cannot be completed at this time".
