Operations Manager 2007 SP1 RTM released!

Operations Manager 2007 SP1 RTM has been released and can be downloaded at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=ede38d83-32d1-46fb-8b6d-78fa1dcb3e85&displaylang=en

General availability of SP1 will be on Monday 25th.

The package contains steps and instructions for upgrading to SP1 - Please read!

The upgrade provides the following enhancements:
  • Improved Console Performance (Good news, no more 'laggy' console experience)

  • Increased Scale limits (Not sure exactly what yet but will find out)

  • Disaster Recovery Solution for all Operations Manager Roles (I hope this includes the recovery of Operations Manager 2007 Reporting Services - I had lots of issues with trying to restore Reporting Services alone with RTM when the management group had already been installed)

  • Supported in place upgrade from RTM to SP1

On that note here is a supported upgrade diagram:




As promised as long as you are running SP1 RC Eval then upgrading is supported (I know many of you will already be running this)

I will post back with my my experiences of the upgrade...hopefully they will all be positive.
