Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2, R2, R3
The fourth edition of Microsoft’s System Management Server was released in August, 2007 with a new name, System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), making it part of the System Center brand, along with a considerable package of enhancements extending the SMS 2003 product. Since the initial release of SCCM, there have been two service packs, an R2 version, and the beta version of R3. Keeping track of which iteration is necessary for which feature is a daunting task that has been complicated by the R3’s continued beta status and the v.Next product that has been demonstrated at Microsoft’s MMS and TechEd events. In this white paper, we will go through the components of each variety of the product that is often called ConfigMgr in an effort to clear up the confusion around this very valuable piece of management software.
