Microsoft has created a Windows Phone 7 app for managing the forthcoming Small Business Server 2011 Essentials.
The app sends alerts to your home page, and lets you perform certain tasks remotely:
- View storage status
- View status of connected computers
- Start PC backup
- Enable and disable user accounts
- Reset user password
- Reboot server
A neat feature for simple server admin, and a bit of stealth marketing for Microsoft’s smartphone, which is struggling to make an impact.
I hope the app has some additional security though. Otherwise, a phone thief could cause mayhem with those few features.
