About to install a new server to support new software package which requires Windows Server for the Server software. - small org, 5 desktops and a laptop. Just want to verify which Windows Server Essentials I can use,
And can yoo connect WIndows 10 HOME pcs to Windows Server?
Any help will be appreciated.
I'm using windows server 2016 essentials
Hey there @Rdunlea
I strongly recommend reading the specifications on the software package, particularly if it is a database application. I was surprised to find that I could not run FileMaker Server 17 on a Windows business essentials server even though we have just one database server with just a set of 5 client licenses for our small educational non-profit. I had to get Windows 2016 Server Standard.
I am unsure about connecting Windows 10 Home to the server, but you didn't say you were putting on the domain, just connecting it. This conversation on spiceworks alludes to your configuration:
If you are in fact joining the Win 10 Home machines to a domain, it sounds like Microsoft may not be inclined to support the effort: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/how-to-add-windows-10-home-edition-to-a-domain/ec15d3c4-75bb-487b-a58f-9c3135580bed
Best of luck to you.
