Clients cannot connect to Windows 2012 Essentials server

    Frage

  • OK I've tried everything client side from re-installing the Launchpad connector, reinstalling it using the IP address instead of hostname.
    Changing the IP address of the Essentials server.
    All firewalls on clients and server are turned off, domain, local, everything.
    Only AV if any is Windows Essentials Security.
    Happens to pair of Win 8 (fresh install) and Win 7 (existing install) PCs and laptops.

    It was working on and off and client backups were working, sporadically and now nothing at all.

    Manually trying to backup from the client fails
    Clicking on folders works fine, all the usual Windows file/print sharing/AD/DNS is fine.

    Below is the client deploy log for PC I just removed connector, removed from domain, reboot and then reinstalled connector.
    If there's any other logs that might help to be uploaded please let me know.

    Am proper tearing the little hair I have out, any ideas would be much appreciated!

  • FYI I tried all sorts here, port 6602/TCP sharing pointed to .net 4. I'd tried everything else so did a command line uninstall of .net 3 and 4 and rebooted to then re-install but this pooched the server.

    So in the end rebuilt from scratch and re-added clients and all works fine with clients connected and backing up.

    FYI, having firewall off on server makes no difference and all works fine.

    Cheers!

  • What happens when you run the connector...  do not see anything  concrete in the above log file

    please paste the content of ComputerConnector.log

  • You didn't do a sfc /scannow on your server by any chance?  The RWA site works right?

  • What happens when you run the connector...  do not see anything  concrete in the above log file

    please paste the content of ComputerConnector.log

    Will post it now.

    Connector starts fine on all PCs but flashes the little flag in the corner indicating "The server is offline, You are not signed in".

    Shared folders and Dashboard do as their supposed to.

    Backups show always failed, trying to do a manual backup it shows Starting backup for a while, fails, Details just says could not connect to server.

    no, yes RWA works perfect, was one of the few things I was quite surprised worked straight away :)

  • Could anyone tell me what log files I can look at on the server that relate to the service for client backups and launchpad?

    Samstag, 16. Februar 2013 11:38
  • do ensure that all the services are running..

    Windows Server Identity Management Service IdentitySvc
    Windows Server Client File Backup Provider Service
    Windows Server Initialization Service
    Windows Server Server Backup Service
    Windows Server Addins Infrastructure Service

    you also might want to check the if your anti-virus firewall or someother security is causing the issue...

    Samstag, 16. Februar 2013 11:54
  • Have you modified the firewall policy at all?

  • Services are running and no changes to firewall.
    Firewall is turned off for all profiles/networks.

    If it makes any difference, the client PCs are reporting Windows Update status to the server which I receive via the Health Report so there is communication happening.

    Only other thing I changed was the SMB signing to speed up transfers, I've since re-enabled it and no change.

    Sonntag, 17. Februar 2013 12:57
  • The firewall should not be off.

  • The firewall service was still running, just turned off in options of control panel.

    I've re-enabled the firewall, can see the framework port and client backup ports are have an allow rule, tried rebooting clients but no luck.

    I'm tempted to try a Windows Repair and see if that fixes it. I've searched around and there's nothing about running repair with Essentials 2012 and if there's anything different required.

    Anyone tried this?

  • Windows repair of what?  Do not do sfc /scannow
    Sonntag, 17. Februar 2013 17:12
  • well aware of the sfc problem :)

    What I'm suggesting is a Windows repair where you boot off the install CD

  • I'm not aware that will work with a SBSized OS.

    Let's recap, you do not have the workstations joined to the network with the connector at this time?

  • From the top... :)

    Clients 2 x Win 7 Existing, 2 x Win 8 clean install
    Browse to https://server/connect, download, install and join domain fine, reboot
    Log back in and Launchpad comes up flashing flag in bottom corner and indicates server is offline and backups do not run.
    Tried removing from domain and re-connecting using server IP, no different

    Accessing file and folders and RWA works fine
    Reporting of Windows Update status back to server from clients is working.

  • Ipconfig /all from the server and from a workstation please?

    What antivirus is on the workstation?

    If you can join, that's 1/2 the battle right there.  This is WMI/networking/firewallishy issues to me.

    Are the firewalls enabled on both server and workstations?

  • Win 7 clients use AVG Free
    Win 8 none/MS Essentails

    Firewalls
    Turned off for both Client and Server through Control Panel> Windows Firewall applet
    As previous post turned on for both and no different.

  • Interestingly found this fix for WSE2012 firewall rules http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Repair-Windows-Firewall-25814cce

    So ran it and then restarted clients on PCs and still no joy, but....

    Noticed when I first start the client the icon in the taskbar is greyed out. After about 30 seconds you can see it goes green which I assume shows it's connected?

    Sonntag, 17. Februar 2013 18:32
  • Further using the ports listed here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj635062.aspx, I've performed a scan against the WSE2012 server from a client an on the server itself.

    Both only returning 65500 and 65520

    I checked again and all relevant services are up and running.

    I'm currently installing another instance of WSE2012 at another site so will confirm if the ports are open or not.

    It's looking that this is most definitely a server based issue.
    Is there any way to re-install/repair the Essentials components or run a check over files and permissions given regular Windows repair or sfc isn't an option?

  • Just finished install of the new WSE2012 server and port 6602 is open.

    Will look into this again tomorrow, if anyone has any suggestions would be much appreciated :)

  • In the SMB world we say "got a backup?"

    You can't repair a DC you have to migrate to and fro it.

  • Let me post up a default Essentials firewall set, I'd reenable the firewall on the server and leave it as it was installed and then let's go from there.

    DNS for the client or server?

    Server address is 10.0.0.240 which is DNS for client.

    On the server it points to itself for DNS

  • FYI I tried all sorts here, port 6602/TCP sharing pointed to .net 4. I'd tried everything else so did a command line uninstall of .net 3 and 4 and rebooted to then re-install but this pooched the server.

    So in the end rebuilt from scratch and re-added clients and all works fine with clients connected and backing up.

    FYI, having firewall off on server makes no difference and all works fine.

    Cheers!
