WHS "Update Password" problem with Windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having a problem with Windows Home Server, v1 and the Windows 10 login credentials. If I log in to Windows 10 using my Microsoft Account (email address), which has a different password than my WHS password (Local Account), then I get the WHS "Update Password" box appear. I don't know how to have both things work at the same time. I want access to WHS and to log in with my email address in Windows 10. Can someone guide me on how to get this done? Does all this make sense?

  • What happens, if you enter your WHS account name in Credential Manager in the form Windowshomeservername\Accountname and the Windows home server password?

    This is the only way I can imagine working since WHS v.1 run out of support and will never be aware of the Microsoft account. (I also use a domain account on my Windows 10 testsystems, so no experience with the MS account in this context.
