Benefits with Server 2012 or SQL 2012 in ConfigMgr SP1? RRS feed

  • Question

  • My company is planning to implement ConfigMgr 2012 SP1 but they currently do not have a standard build or configuration for Server 2012 or SQL 2012.  I am planning to build my production ConfigMgr server with Server 2008 R2 and SQL 2008 SP3 or possibly SQL 2008 R2 SP2. 

    I am wondering what (if any) functionality I will lose within Configuration Manager SP1 by not implementing Server 2012 or SQL 2012?  I need to decide if it's worth waiting to implement ConfigMgr 2012 until we have tested Server/SQL 2012 in our environment.

    One example I can think of is that my secondary site will have SQL 2012 Express while my primary site will have SQL 2008, but I don't think the version difference will cost me any functionality.  Anything else I should consider?

  • There will be no functional difference as far as I know. Server and SQL 2008 are 4 - 5 years old right now so I would start with a current version of an OS/SQL in order to avoid having to uprade anytime soon.
