Issue

Uninstalling a prerelease version of Connector software does not remove the pre-existing Logs folder

Description

When you uninstall a pre-release (Beta or RC) version of the Windows Home Server 2011 connector software on a network computer, the uninstall program does not remove the pre-existing log files that are located in the \programdata\Microsoft\Windows Server\Logs folder of that computer. As a result, the log files can become corrupt when you install the RTM release version of the connector software.

Solution To prevent corruption of the log files, first uninstall the pre-release software, and then delete the Logs folder located in the %sysdir%\programdata\Microsoft\Windows Server folder before you install the RTM version of the connector software.

I receive “A computer with this name is already connected to the server” when I try to reconnect a computer to the server that did not connect successfully in an earlier attempt

Description

When connecting a computer to the server is canceled or interrupted you may receive “A computer with this name is already connected to the server” error message on a subsequent attempt to connect to the server. This is because a certificate is issued when you tried to connect to the server the first time.

Solution Click Next and follow instructions to complete the Connect my computer to the server wizard if you are sure that no other computer with this name is already connected to the server.

Issue

I receive “To run this application, you must install one of the following versions of the .NET Framework: V4.0.30319. Contact your allocation publisher for instructions about obtaining the appropriate version of the .NET Framework,” when I try to connect a client computer to the server.

Description

When connecting a computer to the server is canceled or interrupted you may receive “To run this application, you must install one of the following versions of the .NET Framework: V4.0.30319. Contact your allocation publisher for instructions about obtaining the appropriate version of the .NET Framework” error message when .NET Framework 4.0 does not install correctly. You cannot continue to connect the computer to the server.

Issue

When I attempt to connect a client computer that is running Window 7 Home to the server, the web page for running the connector software opens, but the client computer cannot connect to the server.

Description

If the router on your network has multicast enabled, the communications between the client computer and the server does not occur properly.

Issue

After I connect a client computer to the server, I still cannot view the libraries on the server.

Description

A service is installed on the client computer that waits for a log on event. When that event occurs, the libraries on the server are mapped on the client computer. When you finish installing the connector software, the service is active but the user logon event has not occurred so the libraries are not mapped.

Solution

Restart the client computer and log on using your Windows Home Server 2011 user account and password. After the log on event, the libraries on the server are mapped on the client computer.

Issue

When I try to connect a client computer to the server, I receive the error message, “The server is not available. To resolve this issue, contact the person responsible for your network.”

Description

The date and time might not be synchronized between the client computer and the server. Windows Home Server 2011 uses the time synchronization service to synchronize the date and time of computers running in a Windows Home Server 2011 network. Synchronized time is critical because the default authentication protocol uses server time as part of the authentication process. For example, if the clock on a client computer is not synchronized to the correct date and time, Windows Home Server 2011 authentication might falsely interpret a logon request as an intrusion attempt and deny access to the user.

Solution

  1. Make sure that the date and time on the client computer are correct. If the date and time are not correct, change them.



    To change the date and time on the client computer

    1. On the client computer, click Start, and then click Control Panel.

    2. In the Control Panel, click Clock, Language, and Region, and then click Date and Time.

    3. Click Change date and time, set the date and time to the correct date and time, and then click OK.

    4. Click OK, and then close the Control Panel.

    5. Try again to connect the client computer to the server.

  2. If you still cannot connect the client computer to the server, make sure that the date and time on the server are correct. If the date and time are not correct, change them.



    To change the date and time on the server

    1. Log on to the server using the password that you set up during Windows Home Server 2011 installation and configuration.

      noteNota
      If you are managing the server remotely, you must log on to the server using Remote Desktop Connection.

    2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

    3. In the Control Panel, click Clock, Language, and Region, and then click Date and Time.

    4. Click Change date and time, set the date and time to the correct date and time, and then click OK.

    5. Click OK, and then close the Control Panel.

    6. On the client computer, try again to connect the client computer to the server.
