Ramblings of a Home Server User

Want to test WHS…

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tom @ 9:55 pm

…but didn’t get invited into the beta test at either the Beta 2 or CTP stage? Well, here is your chance to get your hands on the RC (1424.2) release of Windows Home Server. Just go to http://connect.microsoft.com/WindowsHomeServer/ and then click on the Sign up for Windows Home Server RC link and then click Apply for this program and then you are automatically accepted into the RC beta program.

 Remember after you download the bits, install the build, and during the configuration wizard, enable Customer Experience Improvement Program. The CEIP allows us internally to view install metrics, look at how many drives are in servers, and to see numbers of clients being added to Home Servers. NOTE: This does not collect any personally identifiable information.

 If you have any issues, please go to www.serverplayground.com and post in the forums and we will try to help you out with your issue.

Have fun downloading and installing! 🙂

  1. Congratulations to the summer-job at MS.

    I would like to leave a message to forward to MS WHS developers.

    I have two HP computers with pre-installed XP Media Center. The problem is that both computers has an administrator account named “HP_Administrator”. This confuses WHS to the point that the WHS user account access is locked out when both computers are turned on. When one computer is on, I can access the personal folder that belongs to the other computer, but not the personal folder to the computer that is on.
    I have renamed the Administrator account on both computers, but I still have exactly the same problem since WHS still identifies both computer logon names as “HP_Administrator”

    I did not find any other place to report this, so I hope you can forward this info. And I will be glad to provide more details if needed.

    Have a nice Friday and Weekend.
