SBS 2011 RWA problem with Windows 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Running SBS 2011 with all updates.  Connected a new Windows 8 computer and can access the server from it.  From the server dashboard, the Windows 8 computer indicates that it is online.  Cannot remote connect to this Windows 8 computer using RWA from another computer through the server.  In RWA from a remote computer, it lists the available computers to connect to, and the Windows 8 computer indicates "unsupported operating system" next to the connect button.  Clicking on the connect button returns a message indicating that it cannot find the computer and it might not belong to the specified network.  Is Windows 8 compatible with and supported by SBS 2011 RWA?

  • Correct.  Only Win8 Pro or Enterprise supports connecting to it via a Remote Desktop Connection session.
