Re attach computers to a new WHS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had a WHS and three computers connected to it.
    I had a problem which caused me to have to rebuild and re-install my Windows Home Server.
    I renamed the machine the sme & gave same static IP as the old one, but how do I get my three computers to connect to the new rebuilt WHS?
    The worked fine before but now don't seem to see the machine.

  • On your client computers, you can run C:\Program Files\Windows Home Server\discovery.exe to join them to the new server. If the version of the connector on the client computer doesn't match the server you'll be prompted to update the connector.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
