Systematically and almost methodically, Microsoft has been rolling out updated versions of products related to System Center and Windows Server 2012 since the R2 wave release a week ago. Just looking through the list of updated releases (see the list below), it almost boggles the mind the think that so many products and tools are affected by a revision update.

Another revision, released today, focuses on System Center Orchestrator. The Orchestrator Component Add-ons and Extensions download bumps the tools and integration packs (IPs) up to the R2 version, providing support for the gaggle of new updates. Here's what's included:

·         System Center 2012 R2 Orchestrator Integration Toolkit – wizard-based utilities that allow admins and developers to generate new integration packs and new activities for Orchestrator.

·         Integration Packs – the IPs included in the download are:

o   Microsoft .Net Framework

o   Configuration Manager

o   Data Protection Manager

o   Operations Manager

o   Service Manager

o   Virtual Machine Manager

o   REST

o   Exchange User

o   Exchange Admin

o   File Transfer Protocol (FTP)

o   Active Directory

o   Windows Azure

o   Microsoft SharePoint 2013
