Getting ready for future rollouts RRS feed

  • Question

  • Currently prepping my first whs2011 since beta use.

    Does anyone know of any issues to be aware of if introducing one of the new 2011 boxes into an sbs2008 /11 domain. We have a bunch of V1 whs's connected to domain networks (not joined to domain) but just on the network and connector software installed as administrator with alerts hidden so it doesnt tell them their pw doesn't match or what not. Basically used for backups only. I want to start rolling out whs2011 but do not want to cause any share issues with existing networks.

    Even if I have to go down the same route as before where I would install the connector as an admin and not have any actual whs accts to authenticate with.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Wait for Storage Server Essentials 2008 R2 boxes to hit the pipeline (I'm told they're coming) and use those instead. They support 25 clients and domain join for the server.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
