How to remove WHS 2011 from a homegroup RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been trying out WHS 2011 for a bit and had a laptop at the house and somehow the WHS found it and wants to join that homegroup.  Not a huge deal but I want to know how to get out of HERBIESMOM-PC! Not that I don't like Herbies Mom....

    Want to get out of this homegroup

    There is no option to Leave Homegroup.

    Any suggestions would be most welcome.

    I really like the WHS 2011, seems quite stable and user friendly.

    Thanks,
    John

  • Thanks Phil.

    When I went to Server Settings the option to leave was not there, this server was not part of a Homegroup, I guess it wanted to be in the first available group.

    I joined existing Homegroup.

    Thanks,

    John

  • Just be careful with Homegroups as permissions override the individual permissions you set within WHS.
