Power Pack 1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am very new with WHS and I keep seeing references to Power Pack 1 in the forum. How do I find this and how do I install it? Is that like a Service Pack? Doesn't WHS automatically install updates? Thanks for your help.

    It's available through Windows Update.

    Sort of.  It adds functionality and gets rid of a nasty data corruption bug.

    It does if you have it set up to do it.  Otherwise just open the Console and click Update Now.  Keep doing that until it says there are no updates for Windows Home Server.  Then you will have everything including PP1.
