les nouveautés à venir du SP1 de SCMDM

c'est ici http://blogs.technet.com/scmdm/archive/2008/09/02/what-s-coming-in-scmdm-sp1.aspx

en résumé : System Center Mobile Device Manager 2008 Service Pack 1 will deliver improved performance and scalability, increased reliability, and an expanded set of supported topologies.

The key new features of SP1 are support for multiple instance, PIN reset, and support for running with Windows Server 2008 Active Directory Domain Services. 

The SP1 update can be applied to all previously installed instances of System Center Mobile Device Manager 2008 as well as new installations. The service pack consists of the following features:

Multiple-instance: allows large organizations with distributed IT control points to independently manage devices within the area of their control. This applies to instances within a single forest. Today when SCMDM is deployed at a company, that deployment will manage all devices in an organization; there is no ability to have multiple SCMDM installation. With SP1, if your company has offices or divisions that have their own IT departments, these offices will be able to install an instance of MDM that does allows devices to managed separately from other offices in the company. 

PIN reset. This feature is the same as what is currently available with Exchange 2007. It will allow device PIN reset either by the SCMDM administrator for a specific device or self-service via the MDM Self-Service portal. This feature requires an update to the client as well. Consequently, client support for this feature will be made available as a downloadable CAB file for WM 6.1 phones.

Windows Server 2008 support. Support for Windows Server 2008 including Domain functional mode, Forest functional mode. If you are running AD with functional levels raised to WinServer 2008, MDM SP1 will support that architecture. In addition, Hyper-V (virtualization) will be supported for using hosted Windows Server 2003 for testing purposes.

Performance and scalability enhancement. The goal for SP! is to increase system coverage to 60,000 users in a single instance versus the 30,000 user single instance limitation in MDM 2008. If you require large scale, but want to keep your deployment within a single instance without acquiring additional hardware, this will be very helpful.
