Compatible with HP Media Smart Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I tried installing the Power Pack 3 Beta on my HP Mediasmart server. The install program indicated that it successfully installed, but it lied to me. After rebooting when I look in Settings, it says I'm running Windows Home Server Power Pack 2 and shows this version info:

    Windows Home Server Console: 6.0.2361.0
    Windows Home Server Backup & Restore: 6.0.2361.0
    Windows Home Server Drive Extender: 6.0.2030.0
    Windows Home Server Remote Access: 6.0.2361.0
    Windows Home Server Storage Manager: 6.0.2361.0

  • This is correct. As indicated in previous posts, this is what you should see. Only when the final release version of Power Pack 3 is released, will it say that it is running Power Pack 3. Also, when PP3 does become available, you must follow the instruction in the doc file that says you must uninstall this beta before PP3 will install through Windows Update. The same has been true for PP2.
