installing software on whs2011 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    What are the issues with installing software on whs2011 that are not an official add-in. For example file sync or backup software, such as crasplan, second copy, sugar sync etc, which are windows supported, but do not officially have an add-in.

  • Generally not a problem as long as it's not AV software and it does not interfere with IIS.

  • Back up your Server (so you can recover) and try it!

  • Thanks,

    So what would the requirements be, when evaluating a piece of software, to check if it can be installed on whs2011, (other than being officially supported)

    Thanks

    derek
