I have built a WHS 2011 server. All was well except my Win 10 PC would not back up to it. Installing the KB281721 hotfix was done on the server and part of the process was to reinstall the connector on the PC. I uninstalled from control panel. I then had a ton of problems connecting to WHS 2011 connect webpage. This turned out to be being blocked by the server windows firewall, which started working ok when I disabled the private firewall.
Now the connector web page comes up and initiates the install. Connect a computer wizard starts up and asks me for the server name or IP.
Neither work. Whether I enter the server name or the IP it says the server could not be located.
If I open the remote access web page from any device inside or outside LAN, I can connect to the server and carry out all you would expect. I can connect via RDP, I can ping the LAN IP, I can ping the FQDN and WAN IP.
The server is showing in Network and all shares are browse-able.
I installed the find my server wizard and that failed to find it even using the command line switch with the <servername>
So how do I get the server connector up and running.
I have added theses ports to the router
3389 disabled at the moment until I can secure it better
I found 3 copies of windows home server in the listed devices and have removed all of them.
I am at a loss as to what to do next. Hoping some experienced WHS 2011 server people know what to do next.......
Hi, hoping for a bit of guidance on what todo with my N40L box. I have it sat in the living room connected to the TV. Its running Windows 10 with Kodi, sabnzb, torrents, and a bunch of discs with all my files and media. I would like to have a solid setup that can be used to access my data,, share game ISOs, download NZBs, do backups, etc.
I'm going with WHS 2011, is this the best option considering the other HS OS's available such XPEnology, FreeNas, etc?

I have my WHS 2011 client PC database on its own dedicated drive. This drive is now showing errors, and the client pc backups are now not completing. I have a replacement drive and a backup of the client PC database made before the failure. How can I replace the client PC backup drive, restore the client PC database, AND have WHS 2011 continue to use the restored client PC database?
I have a WHS 2011 box with no special networking-related settings going on. Accessing shares on all the PCs in my house get around 100MB/s read and write. All macs are getting around 25MB/s. Tried mounting shared volumes as cifs and smb. I've found a few forums of people reporting the same with various forms of windows servers and though there are 100 hack-y suggestions, nothing has ever worked for me.
Anyone have any ideas on what I could do to improve performance? If i can't get this working well, it'll mean a lot of buying decisions, completely reworking my network storage.
I am setting up a MicroServer with Windows Home Server 2011 running as a file server at my home (local area network).
On my old file server, I was able to scan documents at my Brother MFC and send them directly to a the user's folder on the file-server via FTP.
WHS 2011 is proving a little more challenging to setup. Could someone please help with how to configure WHS2011?
I've seen the youtube video by Mike on setting up WHS 2011 and FTP, but it only enables one central storage folder, rather than sending scanned documents to a user's individual folder.
any help much appreciated.
