I'm trying to download from my MSDN Subscriber page the Yukon Beta 1 CD's but can't find them anywhere on the site.... Is it still available?

Where can I find the Beta 1 if it’s not available on the Microsoft MSDN Download site?

Thanking you in advance,

I don't think it's available on the MSDN site. They passed out copies at the PDC and PASS and maybe a few other places. Beta 1 wasn't very available. Beta 2 will be publicly available and is targeted for the June-July timeframe.

Can ordinary mortals download the Beta ? What is the licensing arrangement ?

Any word on "upgrade" pricing of Yukon for SQL 2000?

There's no place that I know of to download beta 1. I'm not sure what arrangements for Beta 2 will be but they've described it as "publicly available". I don't think you'll see any pricing information until early 2005.

Don't worry about Beta 1. It was incomplete for the most part. Beta 2 promises to be much better and more full featured. As graz said, that is supposed to be publicly available when it arrives.

Beta 1 sucked. :) I still liked it though.

The companies involved in Beta 1...Isn't it confidential that the company is a participant in Beta 1?

Yukon beta 1 was released to the masses at the microsoft professional developers conference. Actually, it was a build that was slightly newer than beta 1. The people who received it were not held to any NDA.

I'm talking about the companies that are/were participants of the beta not the individuals. The ones that MS specifically selected.

Just came back from a demo of reporting services....

what a joke....

If you use sql server security (yeah I know, not the best idea), but when it gens the html...it saves the connection string in every report...(that means the password and login)

And it's like a step down from Access...

And it's not tightly integrated....

Guy was trying to tell the gathering that it can link data from all differt sources...join oracle to sybase to sql...

yeah right....if you got, say like, 30 hours....

I've found Reporting Services to be very powerful. I've been using it for a couple of months now.

Do you push or do the end users pull the reports...

Do you have a separte sql server install to support the meta data?

And what do you do about report security?

Built your own in asp?

And I'm assuming your fully Windows security....

And do you do a lot of development in studio?

And is everyone upgraded to IE 6.0?

I haven't deployed this to production yet as I am waiting for the Windows 2003 domain to get deployed. It'll use integrated security. I hadn't done any development in VS .NET until Reporting Services. It wasn't too hard to get the hang of it. IE 6.0? Yeah, the intended audience is upgraded I believe. These'll be dynamic reports. They will not be scheduled reports.

Beta 1 can be found on Morpheus for those who can't wait a month until B2 comes out on MSDN.
