Must have Add Ons WHS2011? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I see that there are quite a few addons available. Most are resonable priced at $15-$20. Are there any that are must haves?

    I see the Advanced SysAdmin looks like a good one to have as well as the duplicate finder.

    Will they degrade server performance in any way though is my other question.

     

    Thanks...

  • Some of the add-ins you see are probably for Windows Home Server V1, rather than WHS 2011. But I'd say that there are no "must have" add-ins if by that you mean "add-ins that everybody should install." There may be add-ins that make sense for your particular requirements; those would be "must haves" for you, but probably not for me.

    As for degrading server performance, a poorly written add-in, or one that has very high hardware requirements, may do that.


    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • i have Storage and i think that it is a must have for milti-hard drive servers.

    it creats a large storage space from all your hard drives
