Password Failure after v1 Factory re-install RRS feed

  • Question

    • Running v1 on HP 470 Mediasmart w/2T in 4 drives.
    • Client is desktop running Win7 Ultimate x64.
    • Server software/hardware were all running fine until...
    • I erred installing MySQL & crashed the WHS OS.
    • Performed Factory re-install per instructions using original HP Disks.
    • Connector Software (x64) will not install because...
    • Connector Installer says it cannot find Server even though...
    • Network Center sees & displays HPServer just fine, AND
    • I can access Server via Browser BUT
    • Server immediately asks for UID & PW, but does not accept anything I enter.
    • NOTE: Using RDC I can bring up Server Desktop, BUT I get the same request for UID & PW.
    • After Factory re-install I was never given the opportunity to enter First Password.

    What can I do?

  • You will need to use the factory-supplied disk to install the connector on at least one client; during this installation process you will go through the original "Out of Box Experience" which performs initial configuration of your server. The factory-supplied disk will be labeled "Software Installation Disk", and is not a 64 bit installation, so you will need a 32 bit computer on which you can install.

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