Hi everybody - don't like to start off with my tale of woe...
WHS2011 installed on my HP485 (headless). No server backup.
I installed a trial DB a couple of weeks ago (& now upgraded to 22.214.171.124) & have just got round to sorting it.
Originally I pooled D + my additional 3 1.5Tb drives, then after comments read here, I removed the D drive from the pool. My ServerFolders including my Client Computer Backups are all on the pool (not without difficulty...).
My server will now no longer back up any clients (all w7x64) reporting 'No backups available & The backup is not successfully set up, An unknown error prevented the server from performing the task'. Make sure all services on the server are running, and then try again. (WS Server Backup Service is started).
Event viewer reports Event IDs 267 & 271
The Windows Server Client Computer Backup Service failed at (1714) of (d:\wssg_src\hsbs_colorado\backup\pc\util\datafile.cpp). [i can't find datafile.cpp anywhere]
The Windows Server Client Computer Backup Service encountered the following error: Error code: 0x5 API name: GetFileAttributesEx File: E:\ServerFolders\Client Computer Backups\S-1-5-21-3161307467-197533064-774703749-1012.Machine.configdat Error: Access is denied.

The following fatal alert was received: 42.
The following fatal alert was generated: 10. The internal error state is 1203.
As an experiment to fix the problem I removed one of my lesser computers from the system, uninitialised the connector, which won't reinstall. Similarly reporting 'An unknown error....
Please help me fix this. (Is there a 'roll back to an earlier point? or a headless repair method?)
