Adding users from CSV file using PowerShell and SMSCLI Server! version: 4.0.8+

Many of our users are asking how to add multiple user accounts to Server! at once. Most of them already have a CSV (comma-separated value) text file with username and passwords of the user profiles to be added, so it would make a lot of sense for them to have a simple procedure to import such users from the existing CVS file. You can actually do that very easily by writing a tiny PowerShell script that internally calls our SMSCLI ( Server! Command-Line Interface), and this article shows one way to do so.

The first step is to make sure that we know what VFS these imported users will be using as their “home directory”. For the sake of this example (and to keep it as easy as possible) we will use a parametric VFS like the one shown in the image here below: Continue reading

Multiple instances of Server! v3 on a single machine

One of the most awaited features for Server! v3 is the ability to run multiple instances on a single computer, or even in a single VM (also in the cloud, why not?).

As we’re getting closer and closer to the release of the new major version, we’re happy to show you a screenshot of the very first multi-instance installation performed only few days ago on a VM in our test laboratory.


From this screenshot you will also notice another majorly important new feature of Server! v3: the main service and the log service are not separated. This has boosted performance by leaps, while also increasing overall stability and isolation.

Note: YES, if you buy Server! v2 today, you will receive a FREE upgrade to v3 as soon as it’s released.
