Beta Testers Have Release Candidate of SMS SP2

NEW ORLEANS -- A release candidate for the second Service Pack (SP2) of Systems Management Server 2.0 is in the hands of beta testers and the final version of SP2 should be available within three to four weeks, a Microsoft Corp. official said this week.

Brady Richardson, program manager in the Windows Management Group at Microsoft (www.microsoft.com), told customers about the release candidate at the Windows 2000 Deployment Conference here.

"We’re admitting that we obviously had stability problems," Richardson said in response to a question about the previous release of SMS. Microsoft aims to improve the product’s stability with SP2.

SMS SP2 is one of several components Microsoft must deliver before it can ship BackOffice 2000, which the company has said will be coming this year. – Scott Bekker
