NOTE: I know this is posted in the v1 section, but it was posted there by accident. I think it is more suited to this section.

I have a custom built machine running WHS 2011 with 8 computers being backed up daily.

It has worked flawlessly for years with only drive swaps and an upgrade from the original WHS having taken place.

I recently removed a drive from the pool (I have StableBit DrivePool) and added a new one, but noticed that one of my clients said it was online when it wasn't.

Using the LightsOut add-in I can see that it has been 'online' for the last 14 days, but I assume it's been longer.

Any ideas why this client shows as online when it isn't?

It is connected wirelessly, but I have others connected wirelessly that are fine.
It isn't in any kind of sleep mode, and pulling out the wireless dongle makes no difference.

I'm a bit puzzled by it!

Just my 2 cents: No solution but maybe some incite.

1) I have not had good luck with LightsOut add-in in general and don't use it, I use something else that is Free and just sleeps and wakes. Very basic is what I needed.
2) If that is the only way you are seeing that client on-line is with LightsOut add-in, then I would ignore it because, see 1) :-)

But, It's windows, who knows why, right.

Hope this helps, Good Luck and enjoy.
