Microsoft has released a new update for Windows Home Server 2011. The latest update, Update Rollup 4 provides a variety of fixes for issues uncovered since the previous update.

What’s fixed?

Issue 1

When you try to log on to Launchpad on a computer that is running Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, you receive an error message that resembles the following:

Failed to load server configuration file.

Issue 2

The installation of the client connector is blocked when you turn on Gatekeeper and enable installation from the AppStore or trusted developers on a computer that is running Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.

Issue 3

Assume that you have Update Rollup 3 for Windows Home Server 2011 installed on a Windows 7-based client computer. In this situation, you cannot start the TV Archive service from Windows Media Center on the client computer after you connect the client computer to a Windows Home Server 2011-based server.

Issue 4

When you try to use client connector to join different client computers that are running Windows 7 or Windows 8 to a Windows Home Server 2011-based server, the operation fails. Additionally, you receive error messages from Windows Media Center during the installation.

Issue 5

When the Apple Bonjour service is running on a Windows Home Server 2011-based server, client computers cannot connect to the server by using the client connector.

Issue 6

When a security identifier (SID) is empty in a computer configuration file in Windows Home Server 2011, the client backup database corrupts and the client backup service fails.

Issue 7

When you run the Remote Web Access Setup Wizard to configure a Windows Live domain, an error occurs. Additionally, you may also be blocked when you try to remotely browse a Remote Web Access (RWA) page. This issue occurs because the Windows Live ID Sign-In Assistant component is unexpectedly uninstalled.

Issue 8

Assume that you set up a remotely administered server from a client computer. You set the time zone to Pacific Standard Time (US & Canada) in the Time Zone Settings dialog box. In this situation, the time zone is incorrectly set to Baja California on the server after you finish the server deployment.

Issue 9

When the XML convert module handles invalid files in Windows Home Server 2011, you receive error messages that state some services cannot be started.

Issue 10

This update fixes the Server Backup service exception issue that occurs when the backup service tries to retrieve backup history from event logs. For more information about the Server Backup service exception issue, go to the following Microsoft website:
