Just installed this release. A couple of issues...

1) The DriverUtility.exe is for the Cloud Extender driver, not the Drive Bender driver utility.

2) DB service did not start with WHS2011 server and server could not be seen on network. Had to go to the server and manually start the DB service and then the pool came up, still no access to server from the network, it said the server was down. Restarted again and this time everything came up as it should.

Thanks...
1) Yes, correct (whoops). I've updated the installer with the correct file.
2) Couldn't reproduce this... if anyone else has this issue, let me know.

Hey Anthony, I recall one of the last issues you were having with getting this out was for the Threat Locking issue... I'm curious...how did you end up resolving it?

When upgrading I got these two error messages. It seemed to upgrade without issue though. I ran the installer again after restarting and his Repair just to make sure all of the files were correctly upgraded. No error messages when running the repair.

Bummer :(

 

I just installed it and it looked like all was well at first, but just like the issue I hd with 2.5, after a bit, the Drive Bender Manager stops responding, and the pool no longer becomes accessible. Trying to reboot the server just has it sit @ the shut down screen perpetually. I let it sit for about an hour hoping it would clear itself up, but it didnt. After reboot, same thing happened after about 30 minutes :( I'll try and get logs together.

Anthony, thanks for keeping the updates coming. Drivebender remains a fantastic piece of software, and I have had few problems over years of use with none of them being critical. Installed new version and so far so good!

Be sure to include the OS information along with your logs and also include naming any other software the is disk access related.
