    Windows Home Server and Windows 8 User Name Setup


    My user account in Windows 8 is tied to my Microsoft Account: JSmith@ISP.net. How do I create a corresponding user name on Windows Home Server v1? It won't accept the @ symbol as part of the user name.

    Thanks,

    Which ever User name you used when you set up your Windows 8 is the one you would use for the credentials on the Home server.

    For instance if you used the name JSmith-PC then the User name to use is JSmith.
