The following error occured during Domain Name Setup

“The following error occured during Domain Name Setup:
An unexpeced error has occured communicating with the Windows Live Domains service. 80000190″

Classic problem when factory reseting you home server and trying to configure your domain name – well solution is you make sure your server is fully updated: use the Windows Home Server console application to check repeatedly for updates until none are found.

So don’t remote in, use the console – I suspect it has to do with PowerPack3 who only seems to get updated while checking via nthe console.

My quest for the perfect tablet is over


Asus Transformer Pad TF700T streaming a full HD in 1080p from my Windows Home Server. Flawless, no lag, with amazing quality..  Shit I cant ask for more. My quest for a tablet that fit my needs are over.

*edit* Before anyone asks, I use “BSplayer” to connect to my server and play my videos. The Free version works great so far.

Write a Haiku – win a server..

Write your haiku with the theme “Why I want a Home Server.” and enter the contest to win your own homeserver.

I signed up and spent the sunday writing Haiku, ok i allready have my own homeserver, but you can’t go wrong with two homeservers right? I mean two is more then one so it has to be better.. Right?..

This is me – talking to a machine..

So this morning as usual I logged in to my Windows Home Server from work. I checked for updates and it looks like HP have changed their update search GUI. The update now does the serach and lets you check and install whatever updates available from HP. I guess they prepare us for the upcoming GUI change for MediaSmart models.


The MS Windows Home Server OS update on the other hand still just steamrolls users, while checking for updates It just starts download and install a 248MB patch for .NET SP1.. I’m sure it’s all good, but hey! I want to be able to choose when and where I run and install updates on my server. The result beeing, i can’t access my files right now cuz the damn server starts doing a major update, install and restart..

Just let me know I have a update and then ask me if NOW is a good time to start patching ffs!
