Hiding Users from the Essentials Dashboard

I use Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials at home as my server and one problem that I have lived with for a long time is that I have a number of service accounts created to run some applications that I run centrally on the server itself. A problem with this is that these users will appear on the Essentials Dashboard which looks a bit unsightly. This isn’t something which has particularly bothered me but I accidently stumbled this morning on a blog post by Robert Pearman.

Failed Windows Server 2012 Essentials R2 Azure Backup Integration

Just before Christmas, I upgraded my Windows Server 2012 Essentials server at home to Windows Server 2012 Essentials R2. After re-deploying the server as R2, I re-configured my Windows Azure Backup and my Office 365 Integration. Since re-configuring the Windows Azure Backup, I’ve been having a problem with the integration with the Windows Server 2012 Essentials R2 Dashboard.
