Thanks, Microsoft! For MMS 2012, in the secret front compartment (not really secret – it was just a zippered pocket) of the bag, was a 16GB USB stick with all of the System Center 2012 evaluation bits. I’m digging through the USB stick today, planning my geeky lab, but noticing all of the System Center 2012 goodness provided.
Here’s what’s on the drive:
USB Drive Layout:
- NetFx40 (.NET Framework 4.0 Standalone Installer)
- RV2008 (Report Viewer 2008 SP1 Redistributable)
- RV2010 (Report Viewer 2010 Redistributable)
- SQLAMO (SQL Server 2008 R2 Analysis Management Objects)
- SQLCLU (SQL Server 2008 R2 Command Line Utilities)
- SQLNC (SQL Server 2008 R2 Native Client)
- SQLServer2008R2 (SQL Server 2008 R2 180-day Evaluation)
- SQLServer2008R2.SP1 (SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1)
- SQLServer2008R2.SP1CU4 (SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 Cumulative Update 4)
- WAIK (Windows Automated Installation Kit 2.0)
- System Center 2012
BTW: Did I mention this is a 16GB USB drive? I’ll be using and reusing this thing constantly.
