WHS auto back-up does not work RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been successfully using WHS (HP Media Smart Server) and using automatic back-up during the night. Since I upgraded to the latest WHS release, automatic back-up no longer works. Manual back-up workd fine.

    Overnight, I put the computer into the "low power state" and in the past, WHS would wake-up the computer and perform an auto Back-up and put it back into the "low power state) after completion of back-up.

    I checked all the settings for auto back-up and they are exactly the same as in the past. Further, I checked the Network Adapter Power Management Options and set it to "Allow this device to wake the computer".

    Any idea what may be wrong?
