Hi everyone, we just wanted to let you all know that the Release Candidate for ConfigMgr 2007 R3 was signed off. This update is now available through the Connect Beta Program. RC is pretty much the last stage before RTM (Release to Manufacture)
What’s new in R3 Release Candidate? Below are the key improvements we made in R3 based on Beta feedback from the different groups:
You can access the download here. Here are some other resources as well:
Jeff Wettlaufer Sr Technical Product Manager System Center, Management and Security Division
Will there be an upgrade path from R3 candidate to release?
Jeff here - the current beta is the Release Candidate (RC). The next update to that will be the RTM.
We downloaded and installed the RC but we do not see the reports mentioned in the article. Am I overlooking somethign?
How will the licensing work for R3? Will we need to purchase the server licenses again or can it be upgraded? How do the CALs work for R3? Will existing SCCM CALs be OK, or do we need to purchase new CALs too?
jeff here, ConfigMgr 2007 R3 is a SA benefit. That means you need to have a Software Assurance license agreement to have access to the build
Jeff here, yes, you need to copy the reports. Check out this blog post I did to help you. blogs.technet.com/.../update-to-configmgr-2007-r3-power-management-reports.aspx
