Do we get SBS 2008 Premium in our Action Pack subscription?

A question I have seen floating around lately has been in regards to SBS 2008 and what is included in Action Pack. By now, the October 2008 Action Pack kits are out and people have had time to go through them and see that SBS 2008 Standard is included in the Action Pack kit. So how do you get Premium?

As a Microsoft Small Business Specialist member, you would have also received the SBSC Add-on kit for your Action Pack Subscription which includes an additional Windows Server license and a SQL Server license, which in combination with the SBS 2008 Standard package gives you the SBS 2008 Premium package. So SBSC members do get SBS 2008 Premium with their Action Pack subscription while those who are just Registered Member level Partners only get SBS 2008 Standard in their Action Pack subscription. Again, another benefit of being a member of the Microsoft Small Business Specialist Community.

Thank you and have a wonderful day,
