The rollup package is designed to resolve specific issues with the product
At the start of 2009, Microsoft made available the first update package for a suite of solutions with Windows Server 2008 at the core. Windows Small Business Server 2008 Update Rollup 1 went live in January 2009 and was released to Windows Update. According to the Redmond giant, the Update Rollup is set up to integrate with both flavors of Microsoft's server solutions aimed at small business customers, namely Windows Small Business Server 2008 Standard and Windows Small Business Server 2008 Premium.
There are a total of two problems resolved by the refresh, the first concerning erroneous reports of malicious code in relation to machines running the Windows Vista SP1. “The Security tab in the Windows Small Business Server 2008 Console incorrectly reports the spyware and malware status of Windows Vista Service Pack 1-based clients that are joined to a domain. Specifically, some security applications are reported as incompatible in the antivirus and malware status that is reported,” Microsoft revealed.
At the same time, Update Rollup 1 will take care of functionality issues that impact the new domain registering process in a specific scenario. “The Internet Address Management Wizard exits unexpectedly when you register a domain name. This issue occurs when you select GoDaddy.com as the provider, and then you click Register,” Microsoft explained.
Windows Small Business Server 2008 is essentially a collection of products built around Windows Server 2008. On top of the Windows Server operating system, Small Businesses also have access to Exchange Server 2007, SharePoint Services 3.0, Windows Server update Service 3.0, Forefront Security for Exchange Server as well as SQL Server 2008. As the name implies, the Premium edition of Windows Small Business Server 2008 offers a few extra components compared to the Standard flavor. Both releases are available as free trial downloads.
