Windows 7 Clients showing "Not Managed"

Beitrag von wpoulson » 5. Nov 2019, 00:07

Hello Everyone,

I just installed LO 3 on my WHS 2011 server, followed by installing the console and client software thru the link to three client computers: two running Windows 7 64 bit and a laptop running Windows 10 64 bit. The installation went identically and successfully on all machines; however, only on the Windows 10 installation does the console and client seem to be working correctly. On the Windows 10 machine, the laptop, the laptop shows up in the "Computers" tab, and it shows as managed, along with the Server.

On the two Windows 7 installations, while each of these computers show in the "Network Devices" tab, they show as "Not Managed" and they do not show up in the "Computer" of the console, only the Server and the Laptop (as in the above paragraph) show.

Also, the "Light's Out" Client icon in the Windows 10 machine, stays illuminated, showing connected to server, but shortly after the installation to the two Windows 7 machines, the Light's Out Client icon in the task bar of the Windows 7 client computers X's out and says, "Server is offline."

Thank you

Hi Warren,

was that an upgrade from Lights-Out v1 or v2?
Try to right click the two Windows 7 machines and select "Manage computer". If that does not help, then try to reconnect the machines to the server: ... uters.html

Also verify that the WHS 2011 connector is working and that all computers are listed as being online on the computer & backup tab in Dashboard.
