Adding fifth Client fails with "unknown connector error" problem - not time zone related RRS feed

  • Question

  • I tried to add a fifth client to Vail and it repeatedly fails with an unknown error whilst trying to contact the server. Client is my standard home build, Asus m/b, 6GB RAM, Win 7 Ultimate, Intel 80GB SSD. It has been backing up without error for months on WHS v1. I removed the WHS connector first of course and bounced.

    I can connect to the machine from every other PC including Vail, and it can connect to every other machine including Vail. I added it to Homegroup but it made no difference.

    The error is the same every time and here is the log from the client. I really would appreciate your help, the other four PCs installed with no problems. I did try and change the timezone to Pacific as opposed to GMT but it did not help.
