Upgrade from evaluation / trial to a full copy of WHS? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to upgrade from from the evaluation copy to a full version of WHS, I understand I would lose accounts and addins, also will I lose the power pack updates? at this time WHS has PP2, The full version is PP1.
    At this time the server is working great, but doing and upgrade to a full version thing can go wrong in the long run.
    Would it be better to do new install and start over from the begining with the upgrade or do a reinstallation?
    Becuse I will need to do the accounts and the addins and maybe PP2 and most of the Files can be replaced from storage, also would I need to change remote access?
    The main question is which is the Best and Cleanest installation?  new install or reinstallation I am looking to get this right befor loading files I can not replace.
    Insight to the questions would be very helpful becuse I like to work on the computer not work on the computer.

  • Most people, by the time they realize they need to install a fully licensed version of Windows Home Server, have already moved a great deal of hard to replace data to their server, so wiping the server can be very painful. But if you have nothing irreplaceable on your server now, paving it over is the cleanest way to go.

    For more about the upgrade process, see this FAQ posting.

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