Client Backup not set


After the recovery of the WSEE server, i did see he ‘old backups’ as Archived. – thats okay (wonderfull actually)

But now clients seem to fail the Backup option, and they report ‘Not set up’
on server-side, aswel on client-side.

Is this being done trough GPO or am i missing an option ?

tip: an repair function would be nice.

(sorry, SBS Fanman here)

Behavior such as this would have nothing whatsoever to do with installing WSEE via the WSEE Installer. Rather, it’s just an oddity (bug?) in Essentials itself (which I didn’t write/create), and so these types of questions would probably get more exposure if you posted them over on Microsoft’s Windows Server Essentials forum instead (although I wouldn’t mention that you’re running WSEE on anything but Windows Server 2016 over there in order to avoid the naysayers and critics).

That being said… Have you tried reconnecting the client PCs back up to the server again (via http://YourServerName/connect), and then going through the “Customize Backup for the computer” wizard that’s located on the “DEVICES” tab of the server Dashboard (after you highlight/select the client PC within the list of connected client computers) to see if that gets the automatic backups going for you once again?
