Round 1 of Updates for Windows Home Server

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tom @ 9:57 pm

Hey Everybody,

As I am sure you are all well aware. Microsoft has released the first update for Windows Home Server. According to knowledge base article 941913 the update does the following:

Windows Home Server Connector installation
The installation of Windows Home Server Connector may fail because of the firewall software that has been installed on the computer. This package updates the Windows Home Server Connector software and the corresponding Help files to help you identify and troubleshoot firewall software issues and incorrect proxy server settings.
Remote Access configuration and troubleshooting
The configuration of Windows Home Server Remote Access may fail because of different factors. This package updates the remote access configuration steps and the corresponding Help files. This improvement helps you troubleshoot issues that occur with home network routers, with firewalls, and with other broadband implementations.
User Account tab
This package updates the User Account tab. This improvement gives you more information when you use the Windows Home Server-related products for the first time.
Home computer backup technologies
Network interruptions may occur in a home network environment because of connectivity problems. This update improves the backup technologies in Windows Home Server to help you back up data when a network interruption occurs. Backup operations can continue after a network connection is restored.

I’ve just installed the update on my Windows Home Server, and here are some screenshots of what the update has done.
