Microsoft SQL Server’s MDS has come a long way.

OK, now that I have your attention pretty much nothing has changed in Denali’s Master Data Services.  The install procedure is a bit different now but that is about it.  To install the Denali version of MDS just run through the normal SQL Server installer.  When you get to the service list page scroll to the bottom to find “Master Data Services” listed down there.  Check it and move through the installer.  After installation open
/* Style Definitions */
table.MsoNormalTable
{mso-style-name:”Table Normal”;
mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0;
mso-tstyle-colband-size:0;
mso-style-noshow:yes;
mso-style-priority:99;
mso-style-parent:”";
mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt;
mso-para-margin-top:0in;
mso-para-margin-right:0in;
mso-para-margin-bottom:10.0pt;
mso-para-margin-left:0in;
line-height:115%;
mso-pagination:widow-orphan;
font-size:11.0pt;
font-family:”Calibri”,”sans-serif”;
mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri;
mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin;
mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri;
mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin;
mso-bidi-font-family:”Times New Roman”;
mso-bidi-theme-font:minor-bidi;}
Start > Program Files > Microsoft SQL Server Denali CTP 1 > Master Data Services > Configuration Manager.  This will allow you to configure the database and website to configure MDS, which looks identical to the SQL Server 2008 R2 Configuration Manager.  The website to configure MDS is also identical to the SQL Server 2008 R2 website as well.

When it comes to loading and processing data within MDS, nothing has changed.

In other words, good luck with the damn thing.
