SMS betas – come and play

I’ve been ignoring MOM and SMS recently – I’ve been too fired up playing with E12 all week.  But I’ve seen a couple of beta programs that you may want to get involved with, so get you up to speed on SMS.  Here are the SMS betas that you can currently participate in:

Systems Management Server v4 Open Beta program: Apply now and be the first to participate in the SMS v4 Open Beta currently planned to starta in late February of 2006!  

SMS 2003 R2 – Open Beta: Open Beta program from SMS 2003 R2  

Microsoft SMS 2003 Desired Configuration Monitoring: Configuration Manifest Program
The configuration manifests in this program help get you started with the SMS 2003 Desired Configuration Monitoring solution by providing sample baseline configuration manifests.  

You need to apply for any of these at the Microsoft connect site here.  Sign in with your passport address.. And for those waiting for some more E12 stuff, I’ll start to write about it again next week…
