Any way to start the mobile hotspot at Windows Server Insider Preview Build 25997 23H2?

Copper Contributor

After  OOBE the Build 25997, then install the WIFI driver.

I found the mobile hotspot button is grey, and the section at the settings notice 'we cannot set up mobile hotspot'.

Hi Shane,


Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Is there a particular scenario for which you were wanting mobile hotspot to work on Windows Server?

@Yash_Shekar I have two customers that are using Windows Server and Azure Stack HCI as a platform for mobile clusters for emergency purposes. Currently they connect their management / updates / Azure via LTE routers, but I could imagine in a worst-worst-case scenario I could imagine that using a hotspot might become a feasible thing. Not very high priority for them atm. Just never thought about that is impossible. Thanks for bringing this up @Shane_Chou .
