Small Business Server 2011 Standard–Windows 10

sbsstdI recently did a series of posts about Essentials Servers and Windows 10.

I am just picking up on one issue with SBS Standard (2011) where you have to manually edit a file relating to the /Connect process.

Normally this is straight forward, and the instructions on the MS blog post are fine, except it gave me a major OCD headache. Read more of this post

Windows 10 on WSUS Shows as Windows Vista

I noticed a thread on a forum regarding Windows 10 reporting to WSUS as Windows Vista. This was a problem if you recall for Windows 8 and Server 2012 simply reporting as Windows 6.3 or similar.

Since WSUS received no updates that i was aware of to fix that issue at the time, i found a SQL Command here that updated the WSUS DB to reflect the correct OS name.

Revisiting that now, It was easy enough to modify this to have WSUS report a Windows 10 machine, as Windows 10!

Granted, at this point it only appears that this is a useful workaround – not a permanent fix! (updated 05/08/2015)

Please give me money. It is for a good cause, honest!

PussHello valued Title (Required) reader.

I hope you have been drawn to my site by useful if not invaluable information relating to your current issue with your computer or server.

I have, over the last few years, built up this site, largely in my spare time and am happy to continue to host the site FOC.

I have never sought personal gain from the site and have only asked for donations once before for a worthy cause ‘Room to Read’.

Today I am just going to draw your attention to a little blue banner on the right hand side of your screen that says ‘go fund me’.

If you do have a few moments to read that page I would be hugely grateful to you, and if you would consider a small donation of $1, £1 or €1 we would be forever in your debt, unless you are in Greece (you have enough problems)

Rob.

Rename a client on an Essentials network

Dont PanicI see this question crop up a lot, and people can get themselves tied up in knots second guessing the Essentials Dashboard.  The key thing to remember is DON’T PANIC, as our dear friend Arthur Dent was often told.

Firstly, why do you want to rename your pc? Actually scratch that, you wouldn’t be here if you didn’t have a good reason. (Obviously)

Secondly, how are you planning to do this? Because, stop right now.. thank you very much. (excuse the Spice Girls reference) Read more of this post
