  • Just be aware that an EX47x without upgraded RAM will not give a good user experience with the new version of the software, and even with upgraded RAM it's very likely that some components will perform poorly.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

    You still need to be patient though, expected release Fall 2009

  • What does the 2.5 update include?  Does this move the EX470 from Windows Server 2003 to 2008?  Does it give the EX470 the same features as the EX485?  I searched this forum for "update 2.5" but didn't find anything.  If you can point me to a description of 2.5 it would be appreciated.

  • So sounds like it puts the ex470 on par with the ex485.  That's good news.  Are you getting this info from an HP website, and if so can you point me to the source?  I've perused the HP forums but have not found anything very helpful about the EX boxes over there.
