WHS11 suddenly has numerous errors in starting services RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've had my WHS'11 working fine for a few months. Suddenly over the last few weeks things have gone belly up. My clients can't connect to it, when I login to the box itself I see a ton of errors in the Event Viewer about failingto start services & looking at the Services, I see a ton (10+) services that are set to automatic startup that aren't started. When I try to manually start them, I get the classic "dependency service failed to start." One I see very early on in the errors are the Net.Tcp Listener Adapter & Net.Tcp Port Sharing Service... neither will start (error = service did not respond ot the start or control request in timely fashion).

    Also, when I open the Dashboard on the server, I don't see any users, server folders or computers listed... where the alerts usually show, all I see is a button with "No Data". I can still get to the server folders from other machines (like music, pictures, etc).

    I've been searching and searching and can't find others with this same issue. I've tried turning off the firewall, running CHKDSK /F and making sure i'm fully patched up, but nothing seems to fix it. Ideas?

    While I'm ok doing a reinstall, what I don't want to do is deal with a dupe of the remote backup (all music, pictures, videos, etc is backed up to Azure using a WHS AddIn).

  • Try running chkdsk with the /r (surface scan and repair) parameter on all drives in your server.

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • Hi Andrew,

    Regarding the dashboard; have a look in the dashboard.log file and see what errors it gives: http://blogs.technet.com/b/sbs/archive/2012/05/02/key-small-business-server-2011-essentials-log-files.aspx

    Probably the addin assemblies for disks/... fail to load because of dependencies missing or maybe the dll's themselves.
    If they are missing then it's very 'strange' that they suddenly disappeared.
