Microsoft Content Replication System

1. What is the support lifecycle for Content ReplicationSystem?

Content Replication System (CRS) was originally released as a component of Microsoft Site Server 3.0 on June 30, 1998. Therefore, the CRS support lifecycle timeline follows the Site Server support guidelines. Support for both Site Server 3.0 and CRS ended on January 1, 2004.

2. Microsoft included Content Replication System with Microsoft Application Center 2000. Does this change the Support Lifecycle policy for CRS?

No. Microsoft included Content Replication System (CRS) with Application Center 2000 as a courtesy to customers. CRS is still a component of Site Server 3.0, and is therefore covered under its Support Lifecycle policy.

Microsoft Small Business Server

1. How long will Small Business Server be supported? Does this support change by version?

Small Business Server includes multiple server products. Each of these products has its own support lifecycle. To identify the support timeline for each product that is included in Small Business Server, visit the Select a Product for Lifecycle Information Web site.

Microsoft SQL Server

1. What is the service pack support policy for Microsoft SQL Server 2000?

SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 4 Support ends 12 months after the next service pack releases or at the end of the product's support lifecycle, whichever comes first. For more information, please see the service pack policy at http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/#ServicePackSupport. Customers can request hotfixes and updates on supported service packs only.

2. Will all hotfix requests result in a hotfix?

During the mainstream support phase (or during the extended support phase if an extended hotfix support contract was purchased), Microsoft will use commercially reasonable efforts to respond to requests for hotfixes that are not security-related. However, there may be cases where a hotfix will not be provided.
