Microsoft announced the final RTM release of its Windows Server Solutions Phone Connector on Friday.
The connector, for Windows Phone 7 devices, allows Windows Home Server 2011 owners to integrate their phones with their server. The add-in will enable Remote Server Management tasks and relay Media Streams for WHS 2011.
The Windows Phone 7 app also includes Live Tile support. If you pin the app to the home screen you’ll be able to see stats on network health alerts, percentage of storage and the server name without having to open up the application. The Windows Phone app requires the server add-in to be installed on Windows Home Server 2011 which you can download from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=214671. The Windows Phone 7 Application is available through the Zune Market place on your phone or via your PC. Search for My Home Server to find the application."
