Jim was joined by Christian Johnson and John Zajdler for a first look at the Windows Server 2012 Essentials Beta that was released to the public on July 11, 2012. In the show we do a complete rundown of the Server Dashboard, Server Settings as well as a deeper dive into the Server Domain issues (or maybe lack of them) as well as some discussion around Add-ins, Remote Web Access, Media Server, Anywhere Access and we even performed a live back up of a Windows 7 Home Premium PC.
Jim posted a first look of some screen shots over at http://homeservershow.com if the video moves too fast or you want to take a closer look.
