Supporting mobile devices

Published: February 24, 2011

Applies To: Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard

Windows SBS 2011 Standard enables mobile device connectivity during installation. No additional configuration is required to ensure that mobile devices can synchronize with the server. All users are enabled by default to access the server and to synchronize their mobile devices.

Windows SBS 2011 Standard supports devices that are running:

  • Windows Phone 7

  • Windows Phone 6.5

  • Windows Mobile® 6

When a client computer joins the domain, the mobile device configuration tool, the configuration file, and the public self-signed certificate are deployed to the client computer. The user can then connect their mobile device to the client computer and configure the device by using the mobile device configuration tool. No services actually run on the client computer. After a mobile device is properly configured, the user can connect to Windows SBS 2011 Standard to synchronize their email and other data.
