Dell offering Small Business Server 2008?

by | Dec 10, 2008 | IT Consulting

Windows Small Business Server 2008 became available for purchase on November 12, 2008. Since then, I have spec’d several servers for customers and have yet to see the new OS as an option for purchase.

After a little digging, I found a post in their forums that says they are in fact selling the new OS – you simply have to request it over the phone.

As of this post, I still do not see it as an install option on their PowerEdge 2900 or 1900 series servers.

The Dell part numbers are A2108538 for standard and A2108545 for premium.

I am not sure WHY Dell has not updated their shopping cart to allow you to pre-configure this. I will post back when I learn the answer to that question.
