OpsMgr 2007 R2 now at Release Candidate status

Tonight Microsoft announced the availability of the Operations Manger 2007 R2 Release Candidate on Connect (http://connect.microsoft.com). There are a number of enhancements over the beta released in November, including:

  • New Power Management MP template (the monitored system must be either Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7)
  • Updated branding across all user interfaces, including a new skin
  • Improved trace configuration tools to help support issues escalated to Customer Support (if applicable)
  • Improved Run As Account Distribution Configuration
  • Ability to run inline tasks for non-Microsoft servers
  • Support for upgrade from Beta deployments to the Release Candidate
  • New and updated documentation, including the Usage Guide, Design Guide, Deployment Guide, Upgrade Guide, Security Guide, and Operations Guide

The RC should be upgradeable to the RTM version once that is available, but since this is a test version, do not run it in a production environment unless you have made special arrangements with Microsoft.
