Unable to log in from client or on WHS 2011 desktop: incorrect password RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I am posting this just in case anyone else has the same problem.  After I installed WHS2011 I could not log in from the first client I tried to configure.  I kept getting an incorrect password message. I then tried to reset it on the server but received the same error.

    This was solved by switching the keyboard layout back to English US.  I definitely set it to English UK in the setup wizard.

    So I would recommend chosing a simple password in the installation wizard that uses characters common to your keyboard and the US one first. Once the installation is complete then change it if you wish, making sure your keybaord layout is correctly specified.


    PS I may of course made a mistake during installation but I am sure I changed the layout to UK :)
