HomeGroup in Windows Server 2008 R2? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had a quick question before I embark on a new project: are HomeGroups supported in Windows Server 2008 R2?  I am only concerned about the RTM version.  If anyone knows a quick answer I'd appreciate it

  • It's not supported. If you set 2008 R2 as a WORKGROUP you can go to Network & Sharing and then from there to Advanced Sharing Settings where you can turn on Password Protected Sharing, Network Discovery, File & Printer Sharing And Public Folders access.

    For some reason MS left in the Media Streaming option, however when you try to access it it kicks in page loading error.

    There is nowhere to be found any option to set Homegroup.
