Tip of the day: Re-connect Home PCs to Windows Home Server w/o reinstalling Connector

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tom @ 3:22 pm

If you have had to rebuild your Windows Home Server, and you need to re-connect your home PCs to the Windows Home Server, you can do so without reinstalling the connector.  Here are the steps to re-connect your Home PCs to the WHS.

  1. On each Home PC, browse to c:\Program Files\Windows Home Server\Discovery.exe
  2. The wizard will then walk you through re-connecting your Home PCs to your Windows Home Server.


  1. You guys are great, thanks for all the very helpful info!

  2. Thank you so much!

    Hunted ages for how to do this when I changed the name of my server and couldn’t then connect the console.

    Perfect. Made me a happy chappy.

  3. Thank you SO MUCH for sharing this knowledge. I did-a re-install and lost connectivity. I didn’t even think to use the connection software like a dummy!
