Connect Windows 7 to SBS 2008

The SBS offical blog site has an excellent post on how to modify SBS 2008 so that a Windows 7 (Beta) workstation can be joined via http://connect. I have just a couple of observations and suggestions on my part:

  1. If you are joining a laptop, be sure to disable your wireless port(s) and join the server using a wired connection!
  2. When modifying the XML files, I found it best to copy the XML file over to the ‘My Documents’ folder on the server, edit the file there, and then copy/replace it back to the original directory. Obviosuly you would want to make sure you first make a backup copy of the original file (just in case!)
