On SBS SP1 Fulfillment (again)

Author: q | Filed under: SBS

Just last week I posted (among others) that the official SBS blog had a post about the problems with the availability of the SBS SP1 media for those needing ISA 2004. Well, the ordering page at Microsoft has been udpated with the following informationn:

“For existing Windows Small Business Server 2003 Standard Edition customers, Service Pack 1 is available as a free download. For Premium Edition customers, the Standard Edition Service Pack 1 is also available as a free download; however, you will also need the Service Pack 1 Premium CD3 which is temporarily unavailable. Please check back after April 30, 2007, for an update on when you can order the CD from this page. We appreciate your business and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.”

Implication: you will be able to order a CD set with the SP1 media that includes ISA 2004 (for those that have SBS 2003 Premium edition). I guess we”ll know in about a month…

Do they not realise people have businesses to run after all this is Small Business Server!!!! My guess is that come the 22nd release/availiability will be pusehd back again.
