    WHS 2011 comes preconfigured out of the box with Active Directory Management Services but I mostly use my server as a simple SMB v2 file share, and occasionally media streaming. Can I disable this role and expect my server to function properly? I use the server mostly to store and stream tv and movie files to WMC and Emby, and I like to use the dashboard to get to files. Thanks.
