Updated SharePoint Evaluation VHD
Last week in a SharePoint class I did a web search to show the class where they could download the SharePoint 2010 Information Worker evaluation virtual disk image. All I got was the “bad link” page at Microsoft. Turns out Microsoft was just releasing an updated image! Here’s the current URL:
(Be sure to read the notes at the end about the 180 day expire and the “re-arm” steps.)
There used to be two server images:
A – SharePoint and all of the goodies like Office, SharePoint Designer, FAST search, etc
B – Exchange Server 2010 (with over 200 demo users!)
Now there’s a third image:
C – Lync Server 2010
Looks like there about 27 GB there if you down load everything! It’s about 16 GB if you just download the A image.
Everything has been updated to the latest service packs:
Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
Exchange Server 2010 SP1
Project Server SP1
So… start downloading!
