Reinstalled connector on Windows 10; now Server services not starting reliably RRS feed

  • Question

  • One of my Windows 10 machines lost its credentials for WHS while I was troubleshooting a different problem, so I uninstalled and reinstalled the Client Connector. Now when I reboot the client the services don't all start reliably. I can login and the Launchpad starts and tell me that the server appears offline and the event viewer tells me some services aren't started. If I go into the Services MSC and start Windows Server Initialization Service, all comes to life just fine. It is set to Automatic start.

    Any suggestions? Is there any way/need to install the Client Connector with compatibility settings for Win7/8?

    Thanks in advance for any advice!

  • Hi,

    According to your description, my understanding is that services start un-reliably on Windows 10 after re-install the Connector. 

    Try to restart the Windows 10 and logon system with a new user account. 

    Or, try to re-install the Connector:
    1. Un-install Connector on Windows 10.
    2. Remove Windows 10 from the server(Dashboard - Computers and Backup tab – right click Windows 10 - Remove the computer).
    3. Change the Windows 10 to workgroup.
    4. Try to re-connect the Windows 10 to WHS via http://<servername>/connect, and complete the configuration wizard.

    If the problem persists, installing the Connector with Compatibility Mode is also worthy to have a try.

    Best Regards,
    Eve Wang
