There have been a couple of reports from users who experienced Dashboard crashes on Windows Server 2012 Essentials with the Advanced Admin Console 2011 AddIn installed. This new release provides a fix for this issue.
The following changes have been made since version 1.5.0:
- FIXED: The Dashboard could not be launched successfully on some systems when AAC 2011
- FIXED: Clicking on “Quick Status” on the Home tab of the Dashboard caused the Dashboard
to crash when AAC 2011 was installed.

As announced two weeks ago a new release of the Advanced Admin Console 2011 AddIn is now available. This new release is fully compatible with Windows Server 2012 Essentials and also still supports earlier Windows Server Solutions operating systems (Windows Home Server 2011, Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials and Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials).
The following changes have been made since the first final release (version 1.0.0):
- CHANGED: Offline activation made easier.
- CHANGED: Added “upgrade from earlier version” to the “Purchase License” functionality.
- ADDED: Compatibility with Windows Server 2012 Essentials
- ADDED: Access to Storage Spaces (Windows Server 2012 Essentials only).
The Advanced Admin Console 2011 AddIn has always been free for home users and business users have always been required to purchase a license after the initial trial period of 30 days had ended. Since Windows Server 2012 Essentials is targeted at business users by Microsoft the Advanced Admin Console 2011 AddIn now always requires a license on this platform when the trial period is over.
Users are eligible to purchase an upgrade license at a reduced price if they’ve purchased an Advanced Admin Console 2011 license for an earlier operating system and have either upgraded their server’s operating system or replaced the server they initially purchased the license for.

I finished porting the Advanced Admin Console 2011 AddIn to the new Windows Server 2012 Essentials platform. It will be available for download shortly.
A couple of days ago Microsoft posted a comprehensive list of essential log files of Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials, which of course also applies to Windows Home Server 2011 and Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials.
With the Advanced Admin Console 2011 AddIn installed these log files are only one click away. You can find a shortcut to the log file folder directly on the Task Panel filed under Server Management.
Refer to Microsoft’s blog post on the Official SBS Blog for a complete list of available log files.
