Is Small Business Server 2011 compatible with Windows 8 or not????


  • I attempted to connect a Windows 8 laptop to SBS 2011 and lost a lot of data, so now I'm TRYING to find out if these are compatible or not.  Following is directly from the page for Rollup 3.  It says that it gets rid of a warning message but nothing about addressing compatibility.  What the hell is the answer??

    Update Rollup 3 for Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard is now available.

    This update rollup contains all the updates that were included in the previous update rollup. Additionally, this update fixes the following issues that were not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) article.

    Issue 1

    You receive a warning message when you try to deploy a client computer that is running Windows 8 in Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard.

    Note This issue occurs because Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard does not support client computers that are running Windows 8. However, after you apply this update, you do not receive a warning message.
