Further to the exciting launch of the Cross Platform Extensions Beta at MMS 2008 in Las Vegas back in April, the team have been hard at work and you can now download the Beta 1 Refresh through Microsoft Connect!
The Beta 1 Refresh adds the following:
- Ability to install the Cross Plat Extensions Beta on Operations Manager roles running a 64-bit operating system;
- Support for the Operations Manager Gateway role;
- Monitoring of IBM AIX 5L V5.3 operating systems.
For those not familiar with the Cross Platform Extensions, they extend the monitoring and management capabilities of System Center Operations Manager 2007 to non-Microsoft platforms including Solaris, HP-UX, Red Hat, SUSE, and now (with this beta refresh) AIX. More information on the Cross Platform Extensions can be found within the Operations Manager pages of TechNet.
If you’ve already subscribed to this program on Microsoft Connect, simply visit the downloads area of the program to obtain the Beta 1 Refresh.
