Today Jeff Wettlaufer has announced at that ConfigMgr R3 has been RTM’ed.

You must all known as well that this is the FIRST release EVER within Microsoft been made that carries the name R3.

Soon I will write a blog on how to install the final RTM code & if you really want to know how it really works in practice and what the caveats are , come to my session “ConfigMgr R3 , Notes from the field” at our own Belgian System Center Day at November 3thd. Register at

I am very excited to announce and to talk about the release of System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3. ConfigMgr R3 drives new scenario support to existing world class capabilities.

Below I will list a few :

  • Power Management for Green IT. When combined with competitive, environmental and regulatory pressure, it is really exciting to deliver centralized, policy based Power Management in ConfigMgr.
  • With ConfigMgr R3, 300,000 managed clients per hierarchy could be managed.
  • By tightening the key relationship to Active Directory with finer, more granular polling and delta monitoring, and marrying this with a new ability to rapidly populate those changes into collections. 
  • Some additional OSD Scenarios , such a Pre-staged Media.
  • Some always wanted ConfigMgr Administrator console extensions , such as “Add a resource to a collection” on a simplified way.


See you at 3 November @ Living Tomorrow when delivering an ConfigMgr R3 session .
