How to Know when Power Pack 3 is Installed

So how do you know when you have Power Pack 3 (PP3) installed?

Easy, from within the Windows Home Server console go to “Settings” and then the “Resources” tab. Under “Version Information” will be the following information if PP3 is installed

Windows Home Server Console 6.0.2423.0
Windows Home Server Backup & Restore 6.0.2423.0
Windows Home Server Drive Extender 6.0.2423.0
Windows Home Server Remote Access 6.0.2423.0
Windows Home Server Storage Manager 6.0.2423.0

If not click on the “Update Now” button on the “General” tab.

Remember you need PP2 installed for PP3 to get downloaded and beta versions must be uninstalled else PP3 will not be available to you. More details on this are available from here.

    Looks like the connector software on client machines gets updated to 6.0.2423 without even prompting you – nice touch Microsoft.

  11. lm says:

    Does one need to uninstall the PP3 Beta to get the update?

    Yes, you should uninstall PP3 beta before updating.

    PP3 broke my WHS Widget, which was easily remedied by re-embedding it.

    Just putting that out there in case others see the same problem.

    I think it is interesting that after installing PP3 – if you look at the computer’s properties (right click computer icon), it still lists “Windows Home Server Power Pack 2” as the current OS. If you check the Resources tab of the WHS Console – it will show “Windows Home Server with Power Pack 3”
