Microsoft makes SBS 2008 bits available to (some) subscribers

The RTM version of Microsoft Small Business Server 2008 is posted to Microsoft’s TechNet and MSDN for subscribers. Some subscribers that is. A few subsets of that population still cannot access the software — all they get is greyed-out links. That’s a buzz kill. Word has it that Microsoft is working on the issue.

Also, Action Pack subscribers, who got access to the premium edition of SBS 2003, will now only get the Standard Edition. The differentiator between standard and premium editions is the presence of SQL Server 2008 in the latter. And since Action Pack people already can get the database, why the shutout?

Registered partners can subscribe to Action Pack for $300 a year to get lots of not-for-resale software and other perks.

Lovely. More highly-detailed personal information in 'The Cloud' - because it is cheaper.

I'll start watching for the inevitable news of the data breach on SearchSecurity.

Estamos en un proceso de cambio y los perfiles en la organización son mas para ejecutar que para administrar.
