EMC Nodes won't expand (Windows 8 Pro) RRS feed

  • Question

  • We're running Exchange 2010 SP1 (Rollup 2).

    I installed Windows 8 Pro and installed Exchange 2010 SP1 for the Management Console. I used Windows Update to upgrade the EMC to Rollup 2 (14.1.270.1) and connected to the On-Premises Instance. I get the Org Health screen but I can't get to the Org, Server, and Recipient Nodes. This worked with no problems back in Win7.

    Is this a roles issue? I haven't messed with roles over the weekend, so I doubt it.

  • Hi

    As far as I am aware Windows 8 does not support the 2010 EMC, only the powershell module works.

    Cheers, Steve

    The following Technet document was updated recently(2012-10-03 ):

    As I know, the Windows 8 will be supported in Exchange 2010 SP3.

  • Hi,

    Maybe issue with the account which you used to logged in. Did you try logging by domain admin?

  • Yes, I'm using my domain account, which is a Domain Admin.

  • Then I'm also expecting a response from others as you are, since I've not installed Win 8 Pro :(

  • Well, it opens up and is able to make the connection to the server. If EMS works, you'd think EMC (which is after all just a GUI shell for EMS) would work.

    Is there a KB or something somewhere to confirm this incompatibility?

  • Not one that confirms the incompatibility by this one specifically states what OSs are compatible: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa996719.aspx

    This thread indicates a possible workaround but I haven't tried it: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/W8ITProPreRel/thread/46f177cd-a954-4e1f-bab5-7944e2bf24a8

  • That hasn't been modified since July. That doesn't mean it's not supported.

    If it wasn't supported, I doubt Exchange installation would have let me finish.

    Also, Windows Update sees the install as valid and is able and willing to update it.

  • Did you look at the second link I posted?
    Tuesday, October 30, 2012 3:12 PM
  • I did. The strange part is that I'm able to install the Console. It could be that Sp2 isn't supported but Sp1 is.

    I doubt that changing the OS version key after finishing the install is going to affect much of the actual functionality of the already installed console.
