Restore all the missing features from Essentials 2019 (RWA, Connector) 2019 is useless for SME's
Hi Microsoft Server Team,
We finally got around in December to start deploying Windows Server 2019 Essentials to customers.
So far it has been a terrible experience and we are jumping back to the much loved Windows Server 2016 Essentials while we still can.
Our SME customers want the Essentials server for:
1. Remote Web Access (for RDP remote access to PC’s so they can remote in to run their line of business apps like Sage)
- Essentials Connector (to allow home workers join the domain via the /connect URL site and keep them on the VPN to be managed via the server GPO’s and run their line of business apps)
I know lots of others companies will miss the easy client backups (we moved to onedrive folder protection), the Office 365 integration (we moved to AD connect) but the RWA and Essentials Connector are the features that are very very expensive for an SME to replace
Please reverse this decision to remove these crucial features from the 2019 Essentials edition.
Yes Microsoft, please do reconsider this!!!! I'm already using Office 365 with more than one of the small organizations that I work with but that doesn't mean I want to get rid of the functionality of a small server with the Essentials functionality!
