  • windows server 2012 essentials disk partitions

    I am to evaluate Windows Server 2012 Essentials for customers to small businesses.

    I use the trial version for testing purposes.

    My test server is a motherboard Intel S2600CP4, Intel P4000 chassis, E5-2630 CPU Xeon, Intel RS2BL080 RAID controller with 6 500 GB SAS drive in a RAID 5.

    The RAID volume is 2.7 TB as 1 virtual disk.

    2012 Windows refuses to create a partition greater than 2 TB.  I have converted the GPT volume during installation via 'diskpart '.

    Is the limit of 2 TB because of the evaluation of the operating system version or am I missing a step in this process?

    Advice or insight would be appreciated...

    Thank you

  • How can I get Windows Server 2012 Essentials recognize my HARD drive when you turn an external HARD drive in a drive HARD internal storage?

    I recently had a pool of storage space using 3 external drives USB 3.0 in Windows Server 2012 Essentials.  I decided to take the readers out of the enclosure and connected directly to the internal SATA connectors on my motherboard.  When the server was launched upward, these 3 discs now display as disconnected in storage.

    When I do the command 'get-disc' physical in PowerShell, the drives appear as "drives physical 1,2 & 5" and are 2.72 to each. "."  But it also lists disks Seagate Expansion as well, with a status of "communication lost".  These are the same three disks that are now internal.

    Nothing has been deleted or erased, so all the data is still on each individual unit and assume that if I managed to put back them in the external enclosure, would immediately online.  I thought that everything simply moving them to a new HARD disk controller (internal SATA USB) would not cause the pool to drop the readers, they are always connected to the same server.

    Is there a way to get storage space to see and read the 3 internal drives to bring my pool/area back online without losing any data?

  • PC running XP cannot access shared Windows Server 2012 Essentials

    Hello, I'm having a problem with access to files shared on my Windows Server 2012 Essentials on my Dell Inspiron 1100 running XP Pro SP3 I changed all my computers in the workgroup of names to match NetBios servers and all my other computers have access to stocks with the exception of the Inspiron 1100 trying to access in the sharing I am told that I do not have access, I am not offered a prompt to enter a user name and password I am simply denied access. Does anyone know how to get around this problem or fix the issue fact XP and issue with Server 2012 or vice versa. I can access the server to office assistance remotely, but not shared folders which seems strange to me. I've already posted the same question on the TechNet site too since it's a server issue but I find that you can easily post there and receive no help, so that never but I find that almost every subject I posted here, someone has at least made an effort to help with your problem.

    In fact, I created a user account on the server and the XP client gave them both the same user name and password and now I have full access to server shares. I have often continue to try while you wait for answers and find my own solution.

  • Windows Server 2012 Essentials license key questions

    We recently had to reinstall a server running Windows Server 2012 Essentials.

    We have reinstalled the wrench out of the key Windows Server 2012 Essentials on Tower Server. This key worked for a few days. Then the server started to complain that the key cannot be used. When I enter the key in the key of Activation Windows field, a label in this text field indicates the key is valid, but when I click on the button Activate, after half a minute to process the application, it gives a 0xC004F01F error.

    We appreciate any help you can give on this.

  • It is essential that I get as a basis for cloud computing if I buy Windows Server 2012 Essentials?

    In our small business we have Dell pc that we used as an exchange of mail for several years, and now we're looking to put new readers and also to get Windows Server 2012.  However, I said that I'd better get used to cloud computing as the main version "Will FORCE" do that to me...

    Is this correct?  What I want to do is have my 2 people connect and share files-, but not on a cloud?

  • Cost of upgrading Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials

    I recently purchased Windows Server 2012 Essentials for use as a small home server.  I have not yet installed the software yet since Server 2012 R2 Essentials will be published shortly.  I do agree with Microsoft Software Assurance (SA) because it is unaffordable for my use case.

    This news post tackles the new R2 software costs:

    Is it really true that there will be absolutely no discount 2012 Essentials to the 2012 R2 Essentials Server server upgrade?  In other words, if I want to use R2, I lost only $425 on the previous version?

    I'm perfectly willing to pay for the new features, but if this is actually true, it probably is the straw that will break all the time about my relationship with Microsoft.  First Windows 8, forcing me to Microsoft of viscerally uncomfortable mold UI 'Modern' (I went back to Windows 7 like everyone else), then Windows 8.1 that does nothing to address my concerns and now the news that the piece remaining of the Microsoft software that is actually good is unaffordable - it's just too.

    I sincerely hope that this information is incorrect, and there will be a path to a reasonable level for customers like me who cannot afford SA and cannot afford another $500 on the server software.  Honestly, if this is the case I will consider seriously to switch to Linux.

    Please tell me that there was a mistake.  I hope that we are not at an impasse in our 30-year relationship, Microsoft...

    (Apparently there is no category for the Windows Server in the Microsoft community (why?), so I'm posting here in the hope to get a response.

  • One user away from the dashboard of the range Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials

    We migrated from SBS 2008 for Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials range. All users and computers have successfully migrated and their list is visible in the ADUC.

    However, a user is missing from the Windows Essentials Dashboard (users in the navigation bar, tab users).

    The user can work normally: connecting to Active Directory, it can see shared folders and so on. But it is not in the list above. Because of this, it cannot be administered in the dashboard (for Windows Server Essentials).

    What can be the problem? How can get us in the list? What other information should we supply for you to find the answer?

  • Windows Media Player 12 for Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials


    Is it possible to get Windows Media Player 11 or 12 on a Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials, because I have a few videos that I want to watch from the server. I searched on the Microsoft Web site to see if I can download Windows Media Player 11 or 12, but it doesn't seem to work... but is it possible?

    In addition, older versions of Windows Media Player would work for Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials if you provide links. It would be great to try!

  • T61 - Datacenter Windows Server 2012

    Hi all

    I need to install Windows Server 2012 Datacenter with Hyper-v installed on a Thinkpad laptop, because it is more durable compared to others, and I am planning buy Lenovo ThinkPad T61 with following specifications:


    Looking system requirements here on the website of Microsoft, it seems that the T61 meets the system requirements to run Windows Server 2012, but it's largely because Microsoft does not seem to differentiate between the requirements for the Foundation, Essentials, Standard, and Datacenter editions.

    Personally, I would suggest to go with the bigger, more quick 2012-vintage (or most recent) laptop that I could find, for example a W520 or the W530.

    Kind regards
