Small Databse for SCCM2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I know that SQL Server Express 2012 is not supported with SCCM 2012 R2.
    But I have less then 50 clients to be managed and purchasing SQL License would not be best choice.
    Is there any way to use SQL Server Express with Primary SCCM site?

  • No. Full SQL is absolutely required.

  • SCCM 2012 includes the SQL license anyway.

    For 50 computers do you really need SCCM? WSUS + MDT + GPOs application management isn't enough?

    Need to enable the Mobile Device Management , that's why need config mgr.

    By the way, are you sure if I purchase Sccm 2012 R2, I will get SQL free? ... if yes, then no need to think the SQL license, just need to think about the Config Mgr license.

    SQL would be enterprise or standard?

  • From the previous questions you have posted on the forum I believe that you have the rights to deploy SCMM based on your Intune licenses.

    In this case you need to verify that SQL would be free. It is under normal rules but I'm not sure about this one. This is a question for you Microsoft Licensing provider. Please post the answer when you get it.

    Thanks Gerry for information.

    If I understood correctly, If I purchase Intune Subscription then:

    1. Get Access to SCCM 2012 R2 (free)
    2. If I have SCCM then I have SQL Server as well (free).

    As you mentioned already SCCM 2012 from Intune would be able to mange the mobile devices only ,,,, what would be scope of SQL Server?

    Is the SQL license included even you have downloaded SCCM 2012 via Intune Subscription?
    In short, If I purchase Intune Subscription then:

    SQL 2012 Standard + SCCM 2012 R2 will be free?
