WHS Prompts to finish install after admin signon. RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I sign on to WHS as the local admin. WHS it prompts to finish the WHS install. The completion never finished but just errors. After I close all the error prompts I'm at the servers desk top. How do I stop the prompt to complete WHS install?

    Thanks in advance

  • Something must have gone wrong with the installation process.  You should reinstall if this was a recent installation.

    What does the error say? Do you see the WHS console installed?
    If you can't see the console, the problem could be caused by the installation not being able to read the installation dic after the final reboot and unable to install the WHS parts, leaving you with a server 2003 installation without the whs. (I discovered this when I set up my server the first time and ended up having to reinstall the server again)
