Windows Home Server Training Videos


The leading provider of IT training products Train Signal Inc have released over 12 hours of instructor-led training videos for Windows Home Server which show you how to take advantage of WHS to make your digital environment simpler, more organized and more secure.

The training is designed for regular PC users who may have very little technical expertise–and not just IT professionals. It explains everything you need to know to install, run and maintain a Home Server so you can consolidate all of your documents, pictures, music, and videos into a single secure place.

Gary Eimerman, Train Signal’s Director of Sales and Marketing says “Our training shows you how to take advantage of every option and feature that is available” within WHS.

The comprehensive high-quality, instructor-led training tool uses fun, interactive scenarios that show you how to:

  • manage all their home computers through the Windows Home Server console
  • create user accounts, set permissions and download security updates
  • share and access files from any PC in the house with an Internet connection
  • turn their Windows Home Server into a digital video recorder
  • centralize backup and recovery to easily protect data from hard drive failure and other disasters
  • automatically backup and restore PCs
  • gain remote access to files and PCs
  • connect an xBox to their Windows Home Server

The training videos are taught by Scott Lowe (MCSE, CNA), who has more than 14 years of experience and serves as chief information officer at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri and he also authors technical articles for Microsoft and CNet’s TechRepublic.

A preview video and a full list of the video’s content is available at TrainSignal’s site, who are currently offering the Windows Home Server Training Videos for $199.95 instead of the usual $299.95 with a 100% Money Back Guarantee.

    Who is WHS targeted for?

    It’s apparent WHS isn’t for enthusiast because they want something more than just a dumb down management console.

    It’s obviously, geeks and corporations cannot accept a server that is limited to only ten PC clients with no active directory, RAID, etc…

    So that leaves only the home user who isn’t buying WHS to tinker around with WHS third party Add-ins in hopes to workout the many issues.

    Why would anyone pay for a “stay at home server” such as HP EX475 $800 and then be expected to cough up an additional $199.95 more to just be told how to use the product?

    A product designed for a limited audience to be made simple and easy. A product designed to be limited by memory added and features! An targeted audience that was suppose to be without technical backgrounds, right?

    So tell me why does WHS need to confuse or overwhelm “typical home server starters” by giving an impenetrable explanation using technical terms and concepts?

    The whole concept behind “Stay At Home Server” is flawed. And then there is the WHS Drive Extender data corruption unresolved issued without any work around.

    “The whole concept behind “Stay At Home Server” is flawed.” — King

    King, I don’t agree with you at all. WHS is a great product and although it’s not perfect it is definitely useful to a lot of people, including myself.

    I do feel that I am the “target audience” for the WHS because I have enough technical knowledge and background to handle a home server, but I’m not ready for a full server setup. So the home server is obviously for someone in between an IT pro and a regular home user… there is a middle ground you know.

    And the $200 training is totally optional. You can run a home server right out of the box, this is how it was designed. I think Philip was nice enough to point out that there is help available if you need it, and that you can learn how to run your own home server even if you’ve never dealt with anything like it.

    WHS is obviously not for you, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t people out there that can benefit from it.

    Anyone need only watch the lame demo video to realize it’s NOT a training tool, but rather a mayhem of total confusion by Scott Lowe here! Which he overwhelms the typical home user by giving an impenetrable explanations using technical terms and concepts.

    And as everyone can clearly see in the demo video, most of the demonstration has nothing to do with the topic about training! It’s more like an advertisement. Even the video training box looks like a clone of Microsoft’s Vista retailing products…

    Why shouldn’t Microsoft provide training support for it’s own products? Then again, why is WHS needing training videos, when it’s advertised by Microsoft and above, to be made for your typical home user, to be simple and easy?

    Despite Windows 2003 being the base of WHS, nobody noticed how WHS uses instead a limited managment console that’s so boring to be without features it actually requires third party add-ins to provide very much needed functionality?

    Who are you kidding? Everyone can see right through all this WHS propaganda…
