  • Hi,
    which security software is installed on the client (since it may block the communication) and which version shows the Console under Settings/Resources for the server?
    Did you install any additional tools on the server, which might have interacted with Internet Information Server?
    What happens, if you run setup.exe from \\yourservername\home server connector software? Are the msi files there up to date? (file date October 2009)
    Can you find related error messages (around the time of the failed installation attempt) in the event log of the server?
    Best greetings from Germany

  • Hi Olaf

    thanks for the quick response

    security software is Bitdefender Internet Security 2010
    WHS Console : 6,0,2423,0
    nothing additional installed on the WHS Server
    msi file = 2009-10-07 22:16 (exe = 2009-10-07 13:48)
    errors in System Log : MrxSmb the redirector failed to determine the connection type

    then i tried \\myserver\Software\Home Server Connector Software\setup.exe
    installs OK, will now wait for some days to see how backup runs

    thanks and have a good years end
