SCVMM and Windows 2008 R2 SP1 Dynamic Memory support
This is a very important question… When SCVMM will support Dynamic
Memory feature introduced in Windows 2008 R2 SP1 Hyper-V server?
There is less public information about the new features that
integrated with Windows 2008 R2 SP1 so far, So I had to check with MS
Brandon for newsgroup came back with this answer ” I had consulted our SCVMM product team and the answer I got is there
will be a “feature pack” for SCVMM 2008 R2 that will add-in the
capability to manage the new Dynamic Memory feature coming in Windows
Server 2008 R2 SP1. Our product team will try to RTM
SCVMM package very shortly after the RMT date of Windows 2008 R2 SP1.
There will be no SCVMM support for pre-release builds of Windows 08 R2
SP1 until the RC milestone. “
Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 will be
released “within the first half of calendar year 2011,” Microsoft
announced this week.
The service pack is currently available as a beta for test purposes, having been released earlier this month. However, this week, Microsoft published a FAQ on the SP1 beta, which disclosed the approximate product release date for the service pack, perhaps for the first time.
So nothing expected before the first half of calendar year 2011.
