Advice: To Run Windows Server Essentials Role Or Not To Run Windows Server Essentials Role. RRS feed

  • Question

  • That is the question.....

    I am hearing two very different stories about how permissions work if you install the Windows Server Essentials role in a Server 2012R2 Domain.

    On the one hand I am hearing the Essentials Dashboard breaks Active Directory, causes permissions errors, and generally causes havoc in a Domain.

    On the other I hear it integrates seamlessly and very nicely replaces Remote Web Workplace. 

    Any thoughts or feedback on using this role?

    Before people ask, at this moment RDS (due to budget) is not an option right now.  There are approximately 30 users and they are a highly mobile workforce.

    Thank you!
