WHS and media services...... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have WHS11 on a HP Proliant N40l microserver. I noticed that for each user account created it also creates a media service. So from my Playstation 3 I now get two media servers one for the main account and now one for the user account I created.

    Is there a way of turning this off for a particular account? In this case both accounts have access to different shared folders but I dont want one to appear as a service.

    Any ideas welcome.

  • This is not the normal behavior, assuming I am understanding you correctly.  Did you create your server user accounts using the Dashboard? 

    The only way I can think of that this might occur is if you had created separate accounts at the OS level rather than using the WHS Dashboard interface, and that media streaming is enabled for each user, or the server is joined to a Homegroup.
