I have two happy Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials icons in my system tray tonight.
If you’ve been getting driven insane by a every 1/2 hour on the hour yellow alert from the official WSSE/SBS-e/Home server icon, you’ve been bitten by the UR2 bug.
There are now hotfixes out for what ails you.
You receive the warning “Computer Monitoring Error” in Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials after you install Update Rollup 2:
You receive the warning “Computer Monitoring Error” in Windows Home Server 2011 after you install Update Rollup 2:
You receive the warning “Computer Monitoring Error” in Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials after you install Update Rollup 2:
The client-side hotfix package for Update Rollup 2 for Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials, for Windows Home Server 2011, and for Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials is available:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2686872/en-us?sd=rss&spid=1167 (that one will be installed automatically when you install the other main hotfix, it’s just posted here for completeness).
Please choose the version of the KB for your server. Click on the left side under the tools icon to get to the page where you request the hotfix.
Download, install and reboot.
And get a green icon. If you STILL see issues after this hotfix then your issue is NOT the same as what we’ve been tracking and email me at susan-at-msmvps.com to get those log files looked at so we can make a determination of what additional (if any) computer monitoring issues have not been addressed.
