Are you running the latest Windows Home Server Power Pack 3? Do you have the latest connector installed?

Are you using the same username/password, that you have setup on the WHS, to log in to Windows on the local PC when you first boot up?

If you have PP3 then the latest connector will be on your WHS Software folder.

The user account name and password are exactly the same? Password is case sensitive.

Also, check that the password is correct on your WHS... Just login to your WHS using the username/password and see if it works (you will have to add that user to the USERS group on your WHS).

Yeah they are exactly the same... Even of the Account is disabled in the home server it still doesnt ask for a password or tell you to add a username using xxxx details

Open WHS, add this use to Administrators, logoff and try login as this user. Does it work?
