    Would wish Ver 4 to support Windows Server Essentials 2016 as do not plan to move from that version.

      Please continue to support Windows Server Essentials 2016 until Microsoft discontinues. I also plan to use it until end of life.

    I really hope you guys continue to support the dashboard integration in Essentials. I know there are still a decent number of people on 2016. I’m actually on Server 2022 with the Essentials bits added back in and Lights out is still working great even though that’s not an officially supported scenario. I’m hoping this solution will continue to work even after 2016 goes EOL as I’ve been in the Windows Home Server/Essentials ecosystem for as long as I can remember and there just isn’t any drop in replacement for Client PC backups with bare metal restore and all the other things that made the platform so awesome. Please continue to support the essentials integrations as Lights out has been extremely helpful managing power scheduling and WOL in my environment, as well as a few other servers I have deployed for others.

    I am also running Windows Server 2022 with the Essentials 2016 components added and five Windows 11 clients. Please keep supporting Windows Essentials.
