  • The contents and use of the answer file are described in the online help for Windows Home Server. There is one detail missing from that information: when you attempt to install using an answer file, an additional configuration parameter is added to the file which will block future installations from the same file. If you want to re-install you will need to remove it...

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
