Windows 10: Windows home server folder mapping fails in Redstone preview

    Windows home server folder mapping fails in Redstone preview


    Starting with the Redstone insider previews, my HP mediasmart home server works for automatic backups, and I can open the server console to manage the server.

    But it is impossible to map a folder on the WHS to a drive.; none of the shared folders on the WHS are visible, and the homes server is not visible under network.

    Troubleshooting indicates a missing protocol, but has no solution. Solutions suggested in other threads in this forum don't work either. Everything works fine on the no-preview PCs on the network. I am concerned that MS is abandoning the WHS and am worried about future official updates.

    Has anyone else run into this problem and found a solution?

    The linked article essentially says that MS abandoned WHS and rolled it into Windows Server 2012 Essentials: http://www.zdnet.com/article/microso...s-home-server/

    Ok, no future development, but why disable it in the next release of Windows 10 (Redstone)? If so, it's an annoying disservice to us home users.

    It has nothing to do with WHS. It is that Redstone is still in Alpha stage and that there is a lot of stuff that has not been incorporated in it. It explains this in all of the information related to being a part of that program. When it does release, then it will be in Beta, which all of us will get to keep telling Microsoft to fix their OS.

    A lot of stuff is getting cut out of Microsoft 10 Redstone, that is right now in the latest rollout. Microsoft cuts features from Windows 10 Redstone update to meet deadline | Tech | Life & Style | Daily Express

    Personally everyone would really like Microsoft to quit screwing around with the OS, trying to reinvent the wheel. they need to be concentrating on the problems that currently hound Windows 10.

    Yes,; I keep hoping they'll get this to work, but after several Redstone updates, it's not looking good.

    Tell me about it. It is like trying to fit a Big Block into a Pinto.
