Windows Home Server users get Power Pack 2 today


I know from past interest in Home Server content in TechNet Flash that many IT Pros have Windows Home Server. Not surprising, I guess. Who would better understand the value of server software for anywhere access and sharing, backup and restore, and the ability to increase storage capacity? If you have Windows Home Server running, you can now get the English version of Power Pack 2 via Windows Update. Power Pack 2 will automatically install as part of Windows Update if you have Windows Home Server with Power Pack 1 already installed and Automatic Updates enabled on the home server.


Power Pack 2 enhancements include improvements to remote access configuration and new Windows Media Center functionality that provide Windows Media Center computers access to content stored in shared folders on the home server. When the Windows Home Server Connector software is installed or updated on a Windows Media Center computer, the next time a user starts Windows Media Center they will be prompted to install the Windows Media Center Connector. For more on the enhancements, check out the Windows Home Server Team Blog.
