Grid Junction 2.0 Add-In for WHS 2011 and SBS Essentials 2011 Public Beta

A few months ago we told you that Grid Junction 2.0 for WHS 2011 was coming soon. Now there is a public beta of this great add-in.

In case you are not familiar with Grid Junction, which means you’re not jumping for joy just yet, the original add-in was designed for Windows Home Server to manage an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) via the Windows Home Server Dashboard. Grid Junction integrates seamlessly to issue power alerts and help protect Windows Home Server from power problems such as brownouts, or blackouts by safely powering down the Windows Home Server when battery levels reach a set threshold.

This is what Alexander posted:

We welcome everyone to make full use of it but do issue a warning of caution as how it is still NOT the final version please try not to use it on your production/live servers.

Please visit the following link: Grid Junction v2.0 BETA to download your free trial version, put it to through the ringer and let us know what you find. This beta trial will run until January 31, 2012.

Let us know what you think of the beta….

    I have installed Grid Junction Beta 2.0 and almost every morning I get an alert from the server that says that Grid Junction is not running. I can easily restart the service but it stops the next day. Also, it reports that there is a newer version but I don’t seem to find a nwer version. WHS 2011 reports it as version 2.0.0.

    Other than that, it looks good.
