Setup help needed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have just installed Win home server, every thing seemed to install properly. The backup server is not running. I have tried all the suggestions to start the service including repair backup server. I get the message that backup service has been repaired but when i try to back up it tells me that the backup service is not running. There is no bkup server icon on the task bar if that is an indication of anything. Did I not get a good install? I appreciate any help.

  • Possibly you didn't have a fully successful installation. Can you just do a new installation? If you have data committed to the server already you might want to try a recovery instead; this is documented briefly in this FAQ.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
