Hi everyone, We're coming up to We Got Served's ten year anniversary and I've been taking a good look at the site to work through some plans for the future. I wanted to give you all a couple of weeks notice that I'll be closing WGS Forums at the end of this month. As you'll be aware, the forums were opened to support Windows Home Server users and have done so brilliantly, thanks to everyone's participation. However, with each day that passes, there are fewer and fewer WHS deployments out there, meaning that forum registrations and traffic has now dwindled. I've tried a few times over the years to test some forums on related or adjacent topics, however, they simply haven't caught on. It's clear that these were always going to be predominately Windows Home Server forums and, with the passing of that platform, they've served their purpose well. So, please take some time to archive anything you need over the next two weeks. Access to the forums will end on Jan 31st 2017. Many, many thanks once again for your participation and support here. It's been a great community! Very best wishes Terry

I currently run "My Movies"/Server Client on my WHS 2011. I use this setup as a central database for my movie collections and a way to stream movies to 2 - HTPCs, 1 - xBox, 2 - iPads. I don't use my WHS for client back-ups, etc. Since "My Movies" uses Windows Media Center (WMC) and both WMC & WHS 2011 are no longer strategic/supported by Microsoft, as I move to a new Media Center solution (Kodi/Emby), I would also like to move my WHS 2011 to Windows 10.
Is there a way to do this where I can keep my current Shares (12 TBs on separate drives, OS on its own drive) in tact or do I have to start from scratch (hope not).
Let me know if you have questions to provide me with the best guidance.
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.
I can use all feature using the connector software in my local network. But when on the road, I connect via xxx.homeserver.com. Login works, can access my shared folders, but when I want to access the WHS 2011 Server Dashboard or my WHS 2011 Outlook, I got an error like this: The Computer can't connect with the Remotedesktop-Gatewayserver. Contact your network admin. (translated from german) . On an Windows 7 Home and on a 7 Pro Computer this worked. The same problem happens on my Windows 10 tablet. Only local working with the connector software. Windows 10 is version 1607.
Any suggestions what this is?
first off, i'm sorry if this is the incorrect place to be asking this question but, I wasn't sure where to go.
I own a pawn business, and we decided to get pawn master and the server that comes with it. we've been running this software for more than a year now without any problems. once we updated our computers to windows 10, (we have two, the server and another workstation) the workstation started connecting to the server slowly. we would print labels from it and it takes about 2-3 minutes for the labels to be printed from the printer. (before it would be instantly.)
So I've come to ask if anyone would know what could be causing this problem. I don'y really know much about servers at all so I would really appreciate any help that I could get.
I built the server described in this manual with 9TB of storage in a RAID array that brought my capacity down to about 6TB after all was said and done.
While that seems like a lot, my media collection is pushing me close to capacity and I'd like to expand my storage significantly. I have one disk bay left in the box that I can use so that is basically a dead end. Replacing all the drives with higher capacity disks is an option but I fear only for a short while as I am currently putting about 25GB a week of data on the disks and want to ramp that up to as much as humanly possible.
My question is this: I have one card bay that was left empty in the construction of the server. The manual mentioned it could be used for a graphics card or other card of similar interface. Not entirely sure what the type is off the top of my head though.
Can I drop a interface card of some kind into that slot and add a second box to my system that is filled with nothing but disks? Something like a RAID controller that ties in a large capacity NAS into the mix? I'd ideally like to add something like 25TB+ to my storage capacity and think that going outside the box is probably the only way of doing it. But I want it to be considered part of the main disk drive if possible.
Is this possible or am I just thinking too big?
