Client Connector Error -- invalid password RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    My Home Network has two laptops and three desktops plus the server. Two Vistas and three XP SP2 systems. All went well with the setup on laptops and two fo the desktops. Thrid desktop discovers the Home Server, but continually returns an error stating the Password is invalid.  Has anyone experienced this problem? I have typed the correct password in several times and the error notice always appears. Any suggestions welcome.

    On the client machine please go to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\MachineKeys and see that the folder and ALL FILES in it have Full permissions for the Administrators GROUP and SYSTEM account.

    or else (if the machine has been previously connected to another server with the same name as your WHS) try:

     

    On the client computer giving you the headaches launch the following from your Start > Run menu:

    rundll32.exe keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr

     

    Then find the name of your WHS, highlight it and "Remove it".

     

    Logoff, then back in, and update your password one final time through the WHS client.

     

    If all goes well, it should resolve it.

  • Thanks -- I tried both items since I was part of the beta test group and all of the same computers had beta on them. Funny that this one acted up and none of the other did. Anyway, I do not know which of the two suggestions made the difference since I made both changes and then rebooted and loaded the client successfully.
