Microsoft Security Essentials Notifier Add-In for WHS
I found an add-in developer over at MediaSmartServer.net, Christian Johnson, and we got chatting.
He asked me what was the most sought after Windows Home Server add-in. According to the Microsoft Connect web site for WHS. It’s a Microsoft Security Essentials add-in.
So for those of you who took the plunge and installed the beta add-in on your WHS boxes, now you have some protection. Problem is you won’t know if updates have been installed or is virus’s have been found.
With the Microsoft Security Essentials Notifier add-in, MSEN, these notification are captured and forwarded to the WHS desktop connector.
With beta of the Microsoft Security Essentials app installed on you server, install the MSEN add-in. Once installed, there is no tab or setting to set in the Console. The notifications will popup on your PC in the WHS connector. Here are a few examples;

Here is Microsoft Security Essentials.
So there you have it a quick and easy free Security Essentials Notifier add-in.
