Scanner and DrivePool on W10 Server not logged in

Question

Hi All,

I have DP installed on my WHS2011 home server machine, but am planning to migrate my server to W10 instead. I currently don't run Scanner, but am thinking about adding it to my W10 system after migration. My question is: I plan to use W10 as a server without it being logged in (as I understand that is better from a security perspective), but want to check if both scanner and DP will load and work on boot, before a user is logged in?

And then secondly, is there any way to remotely access any kind of status information for either DP or scanner, without having to remote desktop into the W10 server?

Thanks in advance!

Yes

and Yes - with another version of scanner and dp on another machine in the same network

Thanks @Spider99. for the second point, I presume I'd need an additional sets of licences for each program on the "client" to check the "server" remotely?

yes you need a licence on each machine that has DP/Scanner installed

AND - the versions of each program need to be the same on both machines

To clarify, you only need a license on the systems that you want full functionality on. 

If you ONLY want remote access to another system, you don't need a license and you don't even need to activate the trial.
