This computer can not be added to Windows Home Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • This computer can not be added to Windows Home Server.

    A maximum of 10 computers have already been added. Use the Windows Home Server Console to remove a computer that is no longer being used and then try again.

    I currently have 8 computers connected and am getting this prompt when trying to connect a 9'th. If I remove one of the computers I can add an aditional one but never more then 8 total.
    I have previously had other computers added. Can it  be that the registry or database is corrupt? I have run both cleanup and repair on the backup database with no luck.
    The server is fully updated with SP2. I've tried to replace the Home Server Connector Software as suggested in another thread here with no luck.
    Anyone who has an idea?

    Thanks

  • Found the solution,
    In the registry there were two empty keys like this one:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Home Server\Transport\Clients\{E7E8F7C1-9DDF-46D8-BB53-6B9B0E670ADA}]
    "Transport.LastDisconnected"=hex:47,0a,59,4a,00

    I just deleted them and now I can connect all 10 computers!

    Anyone who have an idea of how this might have happened?

    Best regards

  • Could you have connected a computer and then rebuilt it? Or could you have a "ghost" computer in your backup database?
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
