Updating hp mediasmart server
There are two versions of the software, one for the EX470 and EX475, the other for the EX485 and EX487.
Also, the update does include a version of the Twonky media streaming software that is newer than the version included with the 3.0 patch 1 software on the EX490 and EX495 servers, and I did not encounter the same crippling CPU load issue as I experienced previously.If you’re speed reading this, slow down right here – this is the bit to get right.Select Server Recovery, and your data will be kept safe.Select Factory Reset, and everything will be deleted. And just in case you think I’m misleading you: Step 5: Click Next to begin the update Whilst the wizard quotes 60 mins to perform the update, mine was complete in a pretty swift 10 mins – your mileage may vary, of course.Step 6: Reboot the Server With the recovery complete, you can finish with a flourish and reboot that home server!Step 7: Set-up Your Home Server (Again) I mentioned earlier that you’ll be left with a brand new Windows Home Server installation. Hey, check it out – your home server has also been renamed HPSTORAGE – don’t worry, you can switch it shortly if you wish.
I'm getting a message in the Media Smart Server Console that says that the version of software on one of my client machines is not compatible with the server, and it's asking me to update the client software from the server.
HP has sent along the message that many of you have been anxious to hear for quite some time now: the 3.0 software update for the EX470/EX475/EX485/EX487 servers will be available later this week and will start shipping next week.
I’ve had copies of the upgrade DVD’s for about two weeks now and have performed the Server Recovery process on both an EX475 and EX487, with much better results than I experienced last time.
I have also made the install guides from HP available for you to download, be sure to read them thoroughly before you upgrade.
These guides cover the new features available in the 3.0 software, explain what features you will lose from the 1.3 or 2.5 versions, and of course provide step by step instructions on how to perform the upgrade.
The guides are also included on the upgrade disks, but I’m providing these copies with the permission of HP to give you a chance to review them prior to performing the update.
