I just saw a tweet by Anthony Crotty where he said:

Stumbled across the System Center 2012 Suite on the Volume License website

So I just checked and ….

… there it is.  I just checked MSDN but it is not there yet.  Your distributor or LAR should have pricing as of this morning – we did, as well as for the new CIS license.

That explains the glut of System Center 2012 downloads that came out overnight and continue to appear today on the Downloads site.

EDIT:

Thanks to Wilbour Craddock for this: TechNet and MSDN now have System Center 2012 available for download.

  1. Yep – seems to be there – downloading now :-)

    • Make sure you hit download.microsoft.com and view all categories. Dozens of System Center 2012 downloads have been released in the last day or so. And remember my advice: pick the key piece to solving problems, and work your way out from there.

      • Thanks – pulling down from the VLSC. Advice noted.

        On the Unified Installer – NOT to be used for upgrades which is extremely relevant for a lot of people who might rush in there.

        Recommended to get IT GRC Process Pack which looks intriguing but doesn’t appear to be available yet.

        See you got the attention of your American fan again, you’re fame is rising exponentially.

  2. Can you please help with this, or advise where can I find answers to these questions.

    -How many total servers do I need to install the entire Ststem Center suite using the unified installer?
    -Should they be pyhsical servers , virtual servers or a mix ?
    -Is one SQL server enough for all modules, does it need a dedicated server or it can co-exist with one of the modules.
    -Is there any harm in installing all componants on servers that are members of a production domain (although the servers will only have the system center componants on them)?
    -Is it a good idea to install them on Windows server 8? or just stick to 2008 R2?

    Many thanks
    Joe

    • -How many total servers do I need to install the entire Ststem Center suite using the unified installer?
      That depends. See TechNet.
      -Should they be pyhsical servers , virtual servers or a mix ?
      Yes :-)
      -Is one SQL server enough for all modules, does it need a dedicated server or it can co-exist with one of the modules.
      Yes, assuming your capacity requirements are OK, but you need to deploy at least 1 instance per product. And the instance collation must be right for the product.
      -Is there any harm in installing all componants on servers that are members of a production domain (although the servers will only have the system center componants on them)?
      If you are deploying SysCtr for production, then you need to put in on production systems. If you want to test, then you need an isolated lab, e.g. there will be AD schema updates, objects published, service accounts, containers, etc.
      -Is it a good idea to install them on Windows server 8? or just stick to 2008 R2?
      Windows Server 8 is not supported yet. You need to wait for SysCtr 2012 SP1. The the SysCtr 2012 SP1 CTP announcements for more info.

  3. Thank you very much Aidan.
    really appreciate you took the time to answer my questions
