Viaje a USA para MS summit. 

Pues parece que el dia "D" se acerca... Finalmente (y si una "catastrofe" no lo evita), el próximo Lunes 26 de madrugada estaré camino de Seattle para visitar el cuartel general de Microsoft :-D.

He sido invitado, junto a otros tantos MVPs; a visitar y reunirme con los ingenieros del producto para el que he sido nominado; así como para conocer un poco mejor como se trabaja en Corp*.

Se supone que tendremos oportunidad de ver muchas cosas interesantes en las que se está trabajando ahora y que no verán la luz hasta dentro de unos años.

No volveré hasta el dia 3 de Octubre, alrededor de una semana por allí; con lo que no sé si tendré oportunidad de conectar a internet; pero intentaré comentar lo que pueda sobre el evento y publicaré alguna foto cuando vuelva el 4 de Octubre.

*Corp = Nombre coloquial con el que se conocen las oficinas centrales de Microsoft en Redmond.

Saludos a todos...

Corregido fallo en protocolo DAV en Exchange 2000/2003 

Parece que este pasado fin de semana; los "chicos" de Microsoft han trabajado en un pequeño fallo que existía en el protocolo Web-DAV que viene en Exchange 2000 y 2003.

El valor para la propiedad PR_ACCESS que se devuelve desde el método PROPFIND de DAV es siempre de sólo lectura en Exchange Server 2003

MAPI_ACCESS_READ (de sólo lectura) siempre el valor para la propiedad PR_ACCESS que se devuelve desde un método PROPFIND de WebDAV es 2000 en Exchange 5.5

Si quereis acceder directamente a los parches, podeís pasaros por los siguientes enlaces:

Actualización para Exchange 2003 (KB 888619)

Actualización para Exchange 2000 (KB 892986)

PD. Conviene recordar que para poder instalar estos parches, tenemos que tener el SP1 para Exchange 2003 ó el SP4 para Exchange 2000.

Nueva versión de Lotus Notes/Domino 

Según he visto en el Blog de mi compañero MVP en Exchange, el portugués Rui J. M. Silva, IBM ha puesto a disposición del público una nueva versión de Lotus Notes/Domino 7 para intentar quitar algo de mercado al primer sistema de mensajería del mercado.

Para saber más sobre ellos podeís pasaros por aqui:

Lotus Notes/Domino 7 released

PD. Incluso han publicado una comparativa entre Lotus Notes/Domino y Exchange.

Próxima versión de Exchange "E12" vendrá en DVD. 

Tal y como anuncia KC Lemson en el Blog del grupo de Exchange, la próxima versión de Exchange (nombre en código "E12"), sólo será distribuida en DVD.

La razón principal por este cambio de formato, de CD a DVD, parece ser la incorporación de una característica que dará mucho que "hablar" ;-) en un futuro cercano. Me refiero a la mensajeria unificada (os habeis fijado en la encuesta del mes, no ?).

Para leer más sobre ello, en Inglés, pasaros por el siguiente enlace:

Exchange 12 will ship on DVD
