    Server 2008 Beta 3 Download

    Has anyone successfully downloaded this?

    I've been trying today and I just up with a file that is 1gb instead of the 2 and a bit it's supposed to be.

    I can't see an md5 for the iso either so I can't check it.

    Not as yet but for something that size I'd be using a download manager if I were you.

    I have it downloaded and written to DVD here haven;t installed it yet, though I have installed VMWare ready for it. I left it downloading overnight - I risked it without a download manager.

    Is this any different to the Longhorn one they released a week or two before this?

    Looks to me like it'll be a 'move to Server 2008 when you move to Vista'.

    I ain't about to upgrade my production servers to a time limited release of server 2008 so don't worry about that FN.

    Just wanted to install it on my vmware test rig.

    Using wellget to d/l it now but as it says it can't determine the file length it doesn't support resuming.

    na I don’t think I would, It wont be using vista for a long while anyway. But vista is fully compatible with server 2003 even group policies (but you have to manage them from a vista machine)

    snot true, try installing a certificate from a 2003 machine to a vista laptop.( and then cry into your cornflakes when you have oddles of machines needing certificates ! )

    Server 2008 has some very attractive features, notably amongst them a massively improved Terminal Services feature that features Citrix-like application publishing and TS gateways. I don't think we're planning to run our entire network on Server 2008 when it's released (that would be foolish in the extreme) but there are some positive features in there.

    Re: Server 2008 Beta 3 Download

    has MS published a final release date for 2008?

    I guess we should look at creating a project to look into 2008 soon

    Re: Server 2008 Beta 3 Download

    Dunno, after downloading 2gb+ worth of iso and trying to boot it in vmware I just realised I have in fact downloaded the 64bit iso and not the x86

    Downloading the correct one now.
