SCCM (ConfigMgr) R3

ConfigMgr R3 is available to download from the MVLS site so I'm off to put it in the test lab and write up a quick install guide.

Until then, the release notes can be found here:

Main things to note is it advises downloading the latest help file for SCCM as it's not updated during install, but the link provided relates to the March 2010 updated help file which does not contain any of the R3 information.

However, the help file is up-to-date on the Media until they fix the link.

Also, don't forget that all the new Power Management reports in R3 require SQL Reporting Services, so if you haven't got it installed and working yet, time to get it ready!

As Marnix Wolfe is a fan of the saying.. RTFM, RTFM, RTFM!

I've already started to notice a few bits in the documentation, the main thing being the need to deploy the hotfix mentioned in Article 977384.  Fine, except this article doesn't seem to actually exist. I'm wondering if it's actually supposed to be a reference to (Update 14/10/2010 - maybe not actually.)

Angie Stahl however does have a really good blog post about using SCUP to send this update out.
