  •  

    The installation instructions for the PowerPack 1 beta say I need to be running WHS RTM + QEF (build 6.0.1500.6). I currently have build 6.0.1500.0) how do I get up to 6.0.1500.6?

  • If you read the release notes for PP1, you'll see that Microsoft wants your server to be fully updated. You should turn on automatic updates and let it install anything that's pending; this will include the update that you're missing.

  • You can either buy the correct version, get 120 day trial from Microsoft or download evaluation version from Windows Home Server Connect site (where you also get Powerpack 1 beta).

     

    Also make sure you have all (critical) updates installed.

    brubber,

    I have the RTM version - all legal and paid for. I have been in the Beta program since the begining. I have now found out that version 6.0.1500.6 is a result of installing the update associated with KB941913. I did not install this update at the time (last November) it was issued since the article said it was only necesary for installations haveing certain problems. Which I was not.

     

    I now notice that some components of my installation are at build 6.0.1500.8 - later that the KB941913 version (see below). I do not now want to risk screwing things up by installing the KB941913 fix or installing PP1 beta without KB941913.

     

    Can anyone advise if:

    1. it is OK to install KB941913 when some components of WHS are at buid 6.0.1500.8?

    2. Can I install PP1 beta with my current build:

    Windows Home Server Console: 6.0.1500.0
    Windows Home Server Backup & Restore: 6.0.1500.8
    Windows Home Server Drive Extender: 6.0.1500.0
    Windows Home Server Remote Access: 6.0.1500.0
    Windows Home Server Storage Manager: 6.0.1500.8

     

    Thanks

    I have always had Automatic Updates switched on. I have manually initiated updates twice this week. It has not found this update. To get this update you need to request it from the KB article link. Microsoft then email it to you.

     

    Can anyone confirm that they have successfully installed PP1 with on top of the build versions I list in my previous post?

     

    Thanks

  • Your server is up-to-date. You can install PP1.
