Can only connect to WHS briefly RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    After uninstalling an old (2009) McAfee AV solution from my WHS1 box (HP Data Vault), I can only log in to WHS briefly (span of about a few minutes).  Here are the steps I must take in order to be able to connect for even that long.  Please note that I can reproduce this behavior when connecting from ANY of my WHS-connected machines:

    1) Power-cycle the Data Vault.

    2) Wait a minute or two.

    3) Attempt to connect with either the Connector or Remote Desktop Connection.

    4) If I have timed it right, I can both see shared folders and start a remote session (seeing the desktop and all that).  However, the server cannot keep a remote session running for longer than a couple of minutes.  Usually it freezes right when I am trying to access the console in order to diagnose the problem.

    It isn't a network issue--server pings reliably, and I am attempting to connect via computers on the inside of the firewall.  

    Not sure where to proceed from here.  Any ideas?

    Thanks much for any help!
