I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
I think I may have a corrupt file or user setting on my WHS2011. I have 3 cleints (1 HTPC, 1 Workstation, and 1 laptop) that have the connector SW installed on them. 2 of my 3 clients fail to automatically connect (user/password) at start-ups. I get this every time after a start-up and when I then try to access a share from my server:
Not a huge deal, but really an inconvenience & a big PITA. I'll enter the client's user name and p/w and I do check the box "Remember my credentials". But the server still requests this at every re-boot. Once I enter in my credentials I have no issues accessing the server shares. Also, both users are administrators for that PC. The one system that "Remembers my credentials" is my wife's laptop (on wireless) that never accesses shares other than the normal automatic twice a day backups to the server.
I posted over at WGS http://forum.wegotse...e-and-password/ (post 5) but couldn't get it to work.
Also, I recently did a complete fresh install (new OS on a new SSD) for my Workstation and after installing the connect S/W it still asks from my credentials at every re-start. I'm using a different PC name and User Name/PW as well, so it seems the server is where the issue is - not the PC's that don't connect automatically. These are all admin accounts/users so not sure what gives. Also, I do not have homegroup setup on the server. I did initially for about a day when I first installed WHS2011 (May 2011), but pulled the server out of the homegroup, as I didn't feel it was really that secure for my household to be able to access all shares.
Any direction would be welcome.
Sometime back my brother-in-law purchased an HP Mediasmart LX-195 and set it up. Once running they basically ignored it for a long time. Now they need some files from a backup but the password they had written down no longer gets them into the console.
I have tried many different combinations of upper, lower, etc. characters to open the console. I have also tried the username of Admin, admin, administrator and Administrator. So far I have had no sucess getting into their box.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get to the backups and data?
