    Submitting Feedback

    In order for us to gather feedback on the issues you encounter while using the Windows Home Server Power Pack 1 Public Beta, it is important that the feedback is sent to the right place. 

     

    Please submit all bug reports for this release using the following bug reporting form on MS Connect, via the http://connect.microsoft.com/WindowsHomeServer web site.

     

    WHS Power Pack 1 Public Beta Bug Report Form

     

    Please make sure that your bug reports are filed using Connect.  This is the only way that the Home Server team can track and subsequently fix any issues that you bring up.

      

    Every submitted bug report should include accompanying CAB numbers so that the Home Server team can look at the logs and try to help resolve the issue.  Depending on whether you are experiencing an issue related to your home server, your home computer, or both, you need to submit the logs and the CAB numbers for your home server, your home computer, or both.  If you are unsure of the root cause of the issue, please include the logs and the CAB numbers for both your home server and your home computer when submitting a bug report.

    In order to obtain a CAB number, you need to install the Windows Home Server Toolkit on both your home server and your home computers running the Connector software.  Below are step-by-step instructions on how to install the Windows Home Server Toolkit, and how to obtain CAB numbers:
