Releasing the R2 version of System Center Microsoft excluded the support for backing up Windows Server 2003. This raised a discussion in the community and among the MVP’s.
Microsoft realized the challenge this resulted in for many companies and decided to bring the support back with the UR2 that is due to the end of April.
I would like to see this action as a result of Microsoft really listening to the community and their customers. If you got any feedback regarding DPM please provide me with your thoughts.
