SCOM 2012 R2: Support for SQL Server 2008 R2 SP3

Over at the MS SCOM engineering Blog it’s been newly released that SCOM 2012 R2 now supports SQL Server 2008 R2 SP3.

There is a catch though see below for what to be aware of:

Issue: Fresh Install of SCOM 2012 R2 on SQL 2008 R2 SP3 will not work
Workaround: Deploy SCOM 2012 R2 on to SQL 2008 R2 SP2 and after installation upgrade the DB to SQL 2008 R2 SP3
