Newbie WHS2011 Install RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just installed WHS2011 and have done all the Windows updates that are available, yet it still shows that I am on Service Pack 1 and from what I gather we're now up to SP3. I am unable to find the download and am unable to figure out why Windows update won't recognize that its needed and install it.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks

  • Windows Home Server 2011 is based on Windows Server 2008 R2, which is currently on Service Pack 1. So you're up to date as far as the OS is concerned.

  • Thanks Ken - So can I assume that Power Pack 3 and Service Packs are not the same thing, or different depending on the version of WHS?

  •  Power Pack 3 was for WHS1 (based on Server 2003). PowerPacks and Service Packs are NOT one and the same thing.
