Die cast

Had a PCI SATA card on the Windows Home Server die recently. It did something unspeakable to the installation, so much so that the time cost to up and running is lower if I do a re-installation. I know that I haven’t lost any data, so it’s just a matter of getting the platform up and running.

So I’m going Windows Server 2012 Essentials. The Release Candidate. I am confident in my backup methodology, and I have a shelved set of rotating backups. It does mean a change to domain accounts, but that’s OK, as for some reason I’ve made sure that all my clients are running Win7Pro as a minimum.

It will be interesting to see the difference in performance between Drive Extender and Storage Spaces.

More to come.
