  1. fixed drivepool now just gotta get domain working to domain or to workgroup fix this is the ?
  2. cant install drivepool because jave not loaded in server 2012 essentials
  3. hey Cristopher I got 2012 r2 loaded and Ethernet loaded not sure what to do next because I don't wanna screw settings up it wants company info but I never registered a domain for my computer business... what next? I found your phone number under support. can I call if needed?
  4. im definitely .leaning towards 2012 r2 essentals. and I appreciate the help a lot.. im gonna try doing the base load soon...
  5. I don't wanna screw anything up so the less I config the better.. im starting to lean toward win 10 pro just for simplicity.. and use a cloud based backup.. I no essentials is probably better but with my lack of experience im just worried. all I really need is to run drivepool and scanner and iTunes and a few other small programs... if u think I can make 2012 r2 work I wanna consider trying. but is it worth it or overkill?
  6. how far do I have to get through the install process b4 u can help? windows and motherboard drivers?
  7. ok I just gotta find time for the initial install 1st correct?
  8. wow that would be great is it true I can load the 180 day eval and then just use the key when I purchase the full version and not have to reload again?
  9. im hoping to run with a full domain and DNS.
  10. can I skip creating the domain in 2012 r2 trial? and then use the copy paste for workstations? also on sidenote ? how bad off would I be using win 8.1 or 10 pro as my server os instead of essentials? I want a real server but this is complicated for me and like u mentioned in the podcast if domain breaks its a pain to fix...so win 8 or 10 pro may be better for me...but if u can help me with steps to setup and get running without to much pain I would be happy. thanks in advance
  11. I listened to podcast.. dns is what get me confused
  12. im seriously considering server 2012 r2 essentials if I can have my laptops setup on the domain and still be used out of the house disconnected from the domain.. hope its not an odd ? also do I get remote desktop use with the 399.99 server essentials ? im hoping to get the trial up and running soon and then purchace full version if I can figure it out....any help would be great. I really wanna use the backup options of 2012 r2
  13. I wanna run a real server os but domain controller / AD/ DNS scares me during setup. and if I join my laptop to the domain can I still take it out of the house and use it on other wifi hotspots?
  14. im also worrid about active directory , DNS , and domain requirement....
  15. Hi all I have a Gigabyte GA-z97mx-gaming5 motherboard with an intel Xeon E3-1246v3 cpu and 32 GB (4x8gb) Gskill trident ram. my question is would it be compatible with windows server 2012 essentials or server 2010 when it launches. im currently running windows 8.1pro evaluation edition but need to learn more about server os software and hope this build will do the trick.... ill answer and hardware questions u guys have... thanks in advance. ps this machine is a beast with win 8.1 and my biggest concern with 2012 is system drivers...

    CPU Options

    sed im running a Xeon socket 1150 E3-1246v3 @3.5ghz on a Gigabyte Z97MX-Gaming 5 micro ATX motherboard with 32GB Gskill ddr3 1600 trident ram my only small issue is that the network card isn't autoloaded by windows 8.1 or 10 drivepool and scanner run flawless and windows 8.1 enterprise trial is running well ... this config should work and cpu was about 275 and board was 127.99 cpu was 2x8gb for 159.99 so not bad.. I reused my Kingston V3 120GB SSD and my WD green /and black 1 TB drives... I also added 2 6 TB wd red drives.. this BEAST is FASTTTT...u mentioned getting a 5 TB red I love my 6TB... o and if u need a Case look at the FRactal Design Node 804.. awesome case for Micro ATX has room for a slot load dvd, either 8 or 10 3.5 inch HDD and 2 or 4 2.5 inch Drives.. (if u run 10 3.5 drives then u get to load 2 2.5)
