Windows Server 2012 Essentials – Health Report addin RTM

November 22, 2012

The Health Report add-in is designed to monitor the overall status of the server; it can create reports automatically.
A tab ‘Reports’ is added to the dashboard; where you can view the reports and create one manually.

There are different options to set the content of the report:

  • Critical alerts and warnings
  • Critical errors in the event logs
  • Server Backup
  • Auto-start services not running
  • Updates
  • Storage

You can set an email-address and a schedule for the report so that administrators can monitor the actual status of the server and react fast when an error occurs.

You can download the add-in here

Windows Server 2012 released!

September 5, 2012

Microsoft has release Windows Server 2012; it’s the start of something big with everything going to the Cloud and being a Cloud OS.

You can find the official blog post here.
Information on the different editions and pricing can be found here.

Together with this release, Microsoft has created a website where you can find all information; check it out here.

A trial version can be found here, check it out!

Windows Server Essentials 2012 isn’t part of this release; it’s still a Release Candidate.

Windows Server 2012 Essentials Release Candidate released…

August 23, 2012

Microsoft has released a new version of Windows Server Essentials; this is the release candidate which should be the last version before the final version.

You can download it here.

Major changes in the Release Candidate (from the SE Blog):

  • Increased support for importing your own SSL certificates. Previously, customers had to do a lot of work to configure domains obtained in our domain wizard by using SSL certificates that were acquired outside of our domain wizard. We have now updated our wizard, which should make this process much simpler.
  • Installation of only critical setup updates during setup. One of the things that all Microsoft teams care about is getting customers up and running as quickly as possible. With the RC release we have changed our logic to only install critical setup-related updates during setup time. This might not seem to be a big issue if you only occasionally install Windows Server 2012 Essentials, but to partners that install Windows Server 2012 Essentials often, this change will make setup faster and more predictable. Note that customers will continue to select the update strategy that they want to use after the server has been set up.
  • Windows SBS Best Practices Analyzer (BPA) changes. We have updated the BPA rules to include the latest set of rules and have also made it possible to ignore specific BPA rules by using our UI.
  • Office 365 changes. We have now made it easier to import existing Office 365 users into Windows Server 2012 Essentials.
  • Verified DHCP supported. Windows Server 2012 Essentials supports turning on the DHCP role and setting a static IP address for the server.

If you want more information you can find it on the Server Essentials Blog.
