I have been using and recommending PSI to people for a long time now and still think it should be part of every household's first line of defense. I run a (HP MediaSmart) Windows Home Server for backups, file sharing, media streaming, and centralized management of the four PCs in the house.
Is it possible to run PSI on the WHS? At the moment, this is the weak point in my home patch management regime! :-(

Hi,

The PSI is intended for home use, so as long as it's not a corporate server (etc. it's something you just use at home) there is no problem with installing the PSI.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Emil
Yes, it's a home scenario and one I think you'll find more frequently as WHS appears to be gaining ground. So long as PSI will run (i.e. not cause problems on) and work (i.e. identify vulnerabilities in) with WHS, which is based on Windows Server 2003, that's excellent.
Cheers
