WHS Update Package Resolves Lots of Issues RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi Gang,

    I have just posted this over at http://mswhs.com and post it here for your information.


    An update package is available for Windows Home Server that address a massive 7 issues, a few of which are/were major ones. The security certificate error in a web browser has finally gone. Data files which contain alternate data streams (ADS) which can potentially become corrupted when copied to shared folders on WHS has also been resolved and Microsoft Money backup files can now be stored on Home Server without an issue.

    The full list of fixes included in the one update package include:

    Trusted certificate availability

    • You will no longer receive certificate warnings in the Web browser when you access your Web site by using an external URL.

    Remote Access configuration

    • The Remote Access configuration within the Windows Home Server Console will display a misleading message if the router’s UPnP settings are disabled. This message will be updated after you apply this update package.

    Home computer backup technologies

    • A Delete All command button has been added to the Backup tab on the Windows Home Server Console Settings page.
    • Files on the computer may not be successfully backed up if the latest successful backup is marked as “deletion.” has now been addressed.

    Shared folders and server storage

    • Data files that contain NTFS alternate data streams may be corrupted on a Windows Home Server computer has been addressed.
    • You may receive an inconsistent notification when a hard disk that is installed in or connected to a Windows Home Server computer fails. This problem is resolved after you apply this update package.
    • Windows Home Server Drive Extender may not update read-only attributes from the master shadow to the alternate shadow. Therefore, Microsoft Money backup files may not be successfully stored in Windows Home Server shared folders. This problem is resolved after you apply this update package.

    I expect this to be available as an automatic download for Windows Home Server from the Windows Update site within the next 24 hours.
