How can I get notification from the clients if the server is not communicating. RRS feed

  • Question

  • There have been a few instances when WHS has either shutdown or has disconnected from the network.  In these instances, there was no notification of a problem and backups were not occurring.

    Can client computers notify that communication with WHS has failed?  If not, how can anyone be assured that WHS is running properly.

    I only use WHS for backup so it's operation is always in the background.

  • The icon in the system tray will be grey if the server isn't reachable.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
