Microsoft recalls latest release of SME server software

Microsoft has recalled the latest R2 release of its Small Business Server 2003 software after finding that “non-final” versions of core components had been included.

Microsoft has recalled the latest R2 release of its Small Business Server 2003 software after finding that “non-final” versions of core components had been included.

The new software was announced on 11 July at Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference in Boston and had already been released to hardware makers, system builders and distributors. It was scheduled for general release in August.

In a post on Microsoft’s small business community blog, senior manager Eric Ligman said, “Recently, and during a regular audit as part of our software production process, Microsoft became aware of an issue with the final SBS 2003 R2 software containing non-final versions of a few core components to SBS.”

Since the release had only gone to the software giant’s manufacturing partners, Microsoft had decided to “recall and reissue the very limited SBS 2003 R2 production to date”. There would be “a minor delay” to the general release, he added.
