WHS 2011 - After installing connector software, prompted for username and pw on client - please helpBy samiam79
Seeking some help and/or advice on the following issue. I just completed my WHS 2011 build and started the process of running the connector software on each of my machines. After successfully installing the connector software on my desktop PC (windows 7), the computer restarted and booted up - then prompted me for username and password before logging into Windows. I don't recall ever setting up a username and password on the PC. I've had it configured where it has always automatically logged into Windows without requiring credentials.
I had to do a system restore and now hesitant to try to reinstall the connector software. Is there a way to disable the username/password requirement? If not, can someone please advise how to replace the existing one that's on my PC? I assume its in the User Controls section of the Control Panel, but not sure exactly what the path is.
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?
