console issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • the console opens after a lot of effort, and it only shows a blue screen
    When I conncet through remote desktop. the console opens normally.
    What's wrong?
    I also have to mention that earlier this morning it showed that a hard drive is missing (failing)
    but afetr a while this problem has been overcomed.
    it's back to normal now. the only issue remaining is the blue screen of the console
    I mean that it's not accessible from my pc, I can't work
    Shared foldres work normally.

  • Hi,
    since running the WHS console from a client is basically a Remote Desktop session to the server, I see no server side problem here. Did you already use the function to reset the console on the client PC (below the password field)?
    If yes, you may wish to attempt a reboot of the server.
    A missing harddrive on the other side is not so great. Was it an internal or an external drive?

  • Sorry for the dealy, i've been away.
    Yes, I've resetted the  console, still the same.
    By the way, the drive is internal. They actually all (13 so far ) are.
    Any suggestions regarding the console?

    Hi,

    Did you also reboot the server? This will sometimes clear after you reboot the server.

    Thanks!

    Another reason for that would be if your failing drive is your primary drive (specifically if you have bad blocks in the C partition).  Was it your primary drive that was/is having issues?  (In any event, you should start looking for a replacement for it ASAP.)
