    Hey Jerry,

    Downloaded Home Server status on my laptop to try before I buy and I saw something weird happen. I have the icon set in the system tray. I told my computer to do a backup (Manual) When it started it showed the bubble saying that a backup has started and the icon changed to blue and said 1 for 1%. Later on in the backup (around 80% is when I noticed) the icon was flashing green house , then blue percentage, then grey house , then blue percentage and would keep cycling like that until the backup finished.

    The program is great. Most likely going to purchase in the future.

    1 feature I ask for (if it is possible) some way to show the add-ins that are on my launch pad in the right click user menu of the HSS software.

    Thanks and keep up the great work.

    Amazing. I have had one developer and one software manufacturer tell me in the past that a fix for dpi other than 100% is too difficult to do so they wouldn't do it and here you do it in hours.

    Well, I won't say it is easy and that I 100% cured the problem for every computer setup. Why? Well, different folks run at different DPI and resolutions. This mixture can reap havoc.

    Most interesting. I have never seen this. Has this happened every time you have used the HSS application on this laptop? Is the laptop on wireless and maybe intermittently losing wireless connectivity?

    Just some things to think about,

    Jerry

    Hi Jerry,
    I've had the HSS app crash on me twice ver 2.02
    I'm running the app in the system tray. Started the backup last night and the icon went blue with 1% progress. All good.
    Checked it this morning and the status was green. (should be blue)
    Ran the WHS dashboard and it was still backing up at 83%.
    Clicked on the HSS icon in the tray and clicked on the "Add Icon" for Choose Your Server icon. The app froze then crashed. Windows reported a error and closed the icon in the tray.
    Restarted the HSS app and let my system continue witht he backup.
    Checked/clicked the HSS icon and it crashed.
    Here are the details

    I can get you the event log from this morning if it helps?


    Truthfully, because of all the .dll files you are showing, somewhat tells me that you are having more trouble than just my HSS application. I am concerned with the fact that you have told me you were running a backup all night and your dashboard the following morning was still reporting 83% sounds like a rather long time. I would be happy to take a look at your log.

    Curious, did you have this trouble with a previous version?

    I will look into it and try to replicate on my end.

    I happened during the 2 attempts to do backups. I am on wireless and it is a possibility that wireless signal is getting screwy. I have seen the icon change from green to grey for a split second during standby. I will test this on a wire connection and let you know how that goes.

    Jerry,


    I plugged into Ethernet and it worked perfectly fine. It must be a bandwidth issue with the wireless card.

    Sorry for wasting your time,

    Please do NOT ever feel that you are wasting my time. I am here to help you figure out whatever I can and not just with HSS. I enjoy helping the folks in the WHS community. So, please ask and I will do my best to answer your question(s) and if I do not have the answer, I will find it, if at all possible.

    Hi Jerry,
    I had a closer look at the server event viewer and noticed extensive login failures cominng from the client.

    The last thing I changed was to configured the HSS client with a admin password.
    The backup was slow as it decided to use the wifi, rather than the nic card on the client workstation.
    Wierd.
    This is the only version I have tried.

    I thought it would be something like that. I am not sure what is causing the login errors without more information. I can tell you that HSS does not use any login information between the client and the server. The password you set within HSS is for HSS only.

    In short, I would suggest removing your WHS 2011 Connector and reinstalling it OR you can change the client password to re-establish authentication with the WHS 2011 server.

    Some thoughts.

    To All,

    I am not sure about a v3.0, yet, but I would like to hear some of your ideas. Now, before we start, lets try to keep the ideas very practical, somewhat small (we don't want a tray application to be 100mb), and most of all, something we might all use.

    * Let's don't be mean to anyone about their idea(s) either. Some things may seem silly to us but are not to those who need them.

    Thank you in advance for your comments and I look forward to bringing new features to everyone,

    Jerry

    Hi Jerry,
    2 ideas for V3 !
    - Implement a way to see when health alert exist on the server (like red/yellow tray icon on V1), I really don't know if the technology will allow you to do it.
    - Translation for non english users

    But you write English so well.. Just kidding! Christophe, you never did tell me whether or not the added switches resolved your problem.

    Hi Jerry,
    Sorry, I miss to inform you (and to thank you) that the extra field to enter switches has solved my problem. As we say, no news, good news !

    Checklist:
    • WHS 2011 Home Server
    • WHS 2011 Connector installed on a Windows 7 32/64 bit OS
    • .NET Framework v4.0
    When you launch the HSS application, right-click the taskbar icon and go to settings, is your WHS Name listed near upper left corner?

    If the name is listed, can you resolve the host name of your WHS 2011 server? I ask because the HSS application uses your WHS 2011 host name provided by Microsoft's WHS 2011 connector software registry entries.

    Let me know,
    Jerry

    If at first you don't succeed, do it like your mother told you.
