dashboard client can't log in RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can no longer connect any computer to WHS 2011 via the dashboard client.

    Launch pad runs but when dashboard is selected the passwords are not recognized from any machine attached.

    Error is "The password you typed is not correct.  Type the password again"

    I have reset the passwords on all accounts using RDP directly on the backup server but still no connections from any client machine.

    All backups are now failing and no restores can be made.

    There have been no changes made to any hardware/software.  It just stopped connecting out of the blue a few days ago.

  • Have you changed the Administrator"s password on the server?

    The password of the Dashboard is the administrator password of the server.

  • Did the server lose its system clock (time, date, time zone)? Mismatch can lead to authentication errors.
