I know this is probably old news to all of you already, but I didn’t get a chance to blog it earlier this week when it happened because I was traveling.
SCSM 2012 public beta is now released on the download center! You can get it from here:
A few important reminders:
What’s new in SCSM 2012?
Key Features in SCSM2012
The 2012 version of the GRC management pack and the management pack code named “Andes” will be available soon.
As the pre-RTM versions of each of the System Center products are releasing on slightly different schedules right now figuring out which version of each product can be connected to which version of SCSM can be a little tricky. Use this table as a guide:
SCSM 2010 SP1
SCSM 2012 CTP 2
SCSM 2012 Beta
Exchange Connector 2.0
Will not work
Exchange Connector 3.0
Opalis 6.3 SCSM Integration pack

Orchestrator 2012 Connector to Orchestrator 2012 Beta

(SCOM to DW Will not work)
(SCOM to DW will not work)
SCOM Connector to SCOM 2012 Beta
SCOM Connector to SCOM 2012 RC/RTM
** The SCOM CI connector will not work with SCOM RC due to a MP version mismatch on some of the system library MPs. If you need to get SCSM Beta working with SCOM RC please escalate through your Microsoft account team to Travis Wright. We have a manual procedure which can be followed in a lab/test environment to get this connector working.
As you can see there will be a new version of the Exchange connector. The Exchange connector 1.0 and 2.0 will not work with SCSM 2012. I will provide a new version of the Exchange connector - 3.0 Beta - in the first part of November that will work with SCSM 2012 Beta. The same is true of the Send Email solution that comes with the Exchange connector. The 3.0 version of the connector will support service requests and other work item types among some other new features and of course bug fixes. Since I am sure someone will ask… at this point it looks like the Exchange connector will continue to be an out of band solution that is not officially supported by Microsoft. We continue to evaluate ways that we can get it to a supported level.
At the same time that SCSM 2012 beta was released a couple of other releases happened :

Any word on EC 3.0 for SCSM 2012 yet? I have the RC up and running and would like to get this functionality tested as well as we have a customer ready to go live with 2012 at RTM.
Soon. I just have half a feature and a bug to fix. Then final packaging and testing.
Can you provide a further update on the EC 3.0 and when it will be publicly available?
