For those of you who have been patiently waiting for Ops Mgr R2, the wait will soon be over.
An insider at Microsoft told me that @ 2pm PST yesterday, R2 was released to manufacturing.
Nice work for all those involved and now the fun begins…
Kevin Holman has a nice write up on the additional functionality and feature set of R2 (link), but I suggest you download it and take it for a spin yourself:
Customers can obtain the bits from the MVLS website.
New customers can obtain the trial bits from the Operations Manager 2007 R2 website or directly @ http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=93ddf25b-1ef0-4851-81b0-5fb9a2f76181#tm
