DOWNLOADJust like the CTP, the only way to download the Beta of SCM v2 is with a LiveID via Microsoft Connect. You may or may not have to register with our program on MS Connect - it depends if your LiveID has already registered. When in doubt, it doesn't hurt to attempt to register a second time. Please follow these steps in sequence or it won't work!
If this fails, please drop us a line. But, before you email I beg you to try the above steps at least 3 times. Please please. MS Connect sometimes behaves strangly - not my fault - I swear.
BASELINESWe decided to combine the Beta for SCM v2 with 4 new Microsoft Baselines we have to share. Here's the best news - you get it all in one download. The Microsoft Baselines are now *included* in the SCM v2 Beta package (Security_Compliance_Manager_Setup.exe). Pretty cool, eh? Just download the SCM v2 Beta (above) and you'll get all of these baselines. I've put an asterisk (*) by the ones which are new/Beta:
- Internet-Explorer-9-Security-Compliance-Baseline-Beta *
- Windows-Server-2003-SP2-Security-Compliance-Baseline-Beta *
- Windows-Server-2008-R2-SP1-Security-Compliance-Baseline-Beta *
- Windows-Server-2008-SP2-Security-Compliance-Baseline-Beta *
