NEEDED FIXES FOR ESSENTIALS 2012 R2:

Client connector:

Ensure you have installed https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3105885 on the server. This adds the ability for http://servername/connect to run correctly on Windows 10 machines. See http://blogs.technet.com/b/sbs/archive/2015/11/17/client-connector-availability-with-windows-home-server-small-business-server-and-windows-server-essentials-for-supported-client-os.aspx for more details.

Upgrade from RTM to 1511 removed client connector from upgraded machines:

Please be aware we are investigating issues whereby the client connector is removed during the upgrade from RTM to 1511 version. You will need to reinstall the client connector at this time once the 1511 upgrade is completed. See http://www.mcbsys.com/blog/2015/11/windows-10-update-breaks-2012-r2-essentials-connector/ for more information.

Adjust the group policy wmi filter to fix the issue where folder redirection does not work:

Instead of the WMI filter included in Essentials R2, please adjust it as follows:

Instead of select * from Win32_OperatingSystem where (Version >= “6.1%”) and ProductType= “1”

Change it to select * from Win32_OperatingSystem where Version like “10.%” or Version >=”6.1″

Launch the group policy management console.  Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, and then click Run. Type gpmc.msc in the text box, and then click OK or press ENTER  Once you launch the group policy editor, scroll to the bottom where the wmi filters reside. Right mouse click and click edit, and bring up the filter. Now click on edit and adjust it as noted.

 

Alternatively remember that if you want to set up a unique wmi filter just for Windows 10 you can use to select * from Win32_OperatingSystem where Version like “10.%”
