Author by Nathan Lasnoski

System Center Service Manager SP1 is out!  This build is essentially a set of bug fixes and contains all updates in CU1, CU2, and CU3.   You will want to read through the documentation completely prior to deploying the upgrade.  A few key items to remember:
  • This build can be deployed on top of any build, or slip streamed in the intial install
  • SQL 2008 R2 is now officially supported
  • The self service portal is updated with newer ActiveX controls
  • The upgrade supports both language install options
