It is mapping your printer on your local machine through your RDP session, if that is how you are accessing the server. You can edit the RDP shortcut by clicking the "Local Resources" tab and unchecking the printers check box. This will stop your local printer from being redirected.

@Moab got me pushed in the right direction. Thanks! 👍 Turns out Windows Updates are now SHA-2 signed. If your server doesn't have the proper updates to process SHA-2 signatures then updates will fail. So, to fix things, two updates need to be installed: KB4474419 ⏬ download SHA-2 code signing support update for Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 7, and ...

You will have a more accurate picture of monitoring "actual data usage" if you consider setting up WMI, or SNMP on the networked devices or server. With WMI or SNMP, You can poll counters for practically anything from networked ...

Microsoft's instructions are : A network bridge is software or hardware that connects two or more networks so that they can communicate. You can create ...

More than likely, your ISP is blocking port 80. Port 80 is the standard port used for the web. ISPs will block port 80, saying that web hosting is a business level service and will charge your more. Try changing the port in your server to 8080, as well as change your port forwarding. Then connect to your server in a browser with :8080 appended to the end....

Windows Home Server is a home product and unfortunately, it isn't covered by their extended support policy. If there is no replacement product launched and enough users kick up a fuss, they may extend it - but, you can't count on anything beyond the official support lifecycle page you linked to.

I finally nailed this, with guidance from https://serverfault.com/a/452857/126632 (link provided by Michael Hampton). What I essentially did was: Made myself a small, empty helper FAT disk image with Mac's Disk Utility Deleted the domain: virsh delete fas Created it again, with a slightly modified command (changed disk bus to IDE, and also increased disk ...

Unticking the printers checkbox in the RDP comnection settings will stop the redirection when you use RDP to remote in to your server.

you can also disable remote printing all together in settings for RDP client before you connect. You can also use RDP client on MAC to print locally from a MAC over RDP client .. I know right its crazy!

You will need to use Network Password Recovery to view your saved RDP password and then login locally to reenable the adapter. How it works is described in this SuperUser answer. It is impossible to enable the network adapter unless you have access to the physical machine machine otherwise. The only other option I know is to hack the Windows password. I ...

You can try using the tool Remote Desktop Password for recovering your password stored in the saved RDP file. I always rename the default admin account and use a separate admin account for my admin type of work and keep the original account for emergencies with the password(s) documented elsewhere for emergencies. Otherwise you might have to resort to ...

Well I figured it out how to work around it but not the why. (if someone wants to give a technical reason I will award them the answer point) The workaround is: Plug in the other drive that appeared to have nothing on it Turn Show hidden files and folders The contents of the shares will be in the DE folder that is hidden normally

According to this resource, volumes greater than 2 TB need to be created using GPT, rather than MBR.

This is happening because you're opening the remote folder to view its contents before you delete it (naturally, since you want to make sure there's nothing in it you wish to keep). However, this is causing Windows to update the thumbs.db Thumbnail cache. There are a few ways to address this: Don't open the folder before deleting it Wait 30-60 seconds ...

I recently ran into a similar problem trying to get the WHSv1 restore CD to see my onboard NIC. Like you I extracted the x32 drivers from Intel's installer using 7-zip and copied them over to a flash drive, but Windows would fail to detect and install the hardware. It turned out that the problem wasn't that Windows couldn't find the driver I placed on the ...

This happened to me on an HP EX490. My primary drive failed, so I re-installed the system. After final reboot, the system had 50MB free. Based on several other posts out there, I found 12GB of logs This folder had 12.5GB of text files C:\WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles\W3SVC1 Deleting these gave the space I needed. WHS by default has a 20GB drive. During ...

Two popular solutions for WHS 2011 are StableBit DrivePool and Drive Bender. There doesn't appear to be a lot to choose between them.

You can use Mouse without Borders which allows the mouse to move from your computer screen to the server screen (and when the cursor is on the server screen your keyboard sends keystrokes to the server instead) without the need for Remote Desktop Connection.
