  • This is solved by SP1, as SP1 for SharePoint 2010 adds SQL 2012 support.

  • Well the SP1 installation is required in any case. You have to follow some sequence of steps when installing the SharePoint SP1 - first install SP1 for Foundation 2010, then SP 1 for any foundation language packs if any used, then the same for Server 2010.

  • Hello Marek,

    Thanks for your response, well I have successfully installed SP1 but while configuring I got the issue as 


    Login failed for user 'WORKGROUP\ServerName$'.

    Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation.

    I am using user as admin which is local administrator so is that a problem or do we need to be a domain user? .I have just installed SQL server 2012 and SharePoint 2010 in Standalone mode within single windows 7 OS . So, how can we simply configuring the Reporting Services integrate SharePoint 2010 having standalone mode installed in windows7.

    Hope to hear again.

  • SQL and SharePoint are both running on the same server? If not, you shall use domain accounts and those machines should be domain members.

  • I have the same issue. We installed SQL 2012 and SP2010 SP1. But When trying to run the Report Server Configuration, couldn't change the Report Server Database mode from Native.. I don't see the option.

    SQL and SP are running on the same server.

    Also when trying to connect to the SSRS Integration from Central Admin, couldn't  connect to the Valid Source .. Error

    Are we missing something here. Please help.

  • So what can we do for other software that have the same issue?

    They've broken MonoX portal (which is closed source but free to use product) and possibly lots of other s/w with that change.

    Can one create the missing stored procedure by hand? What code should they put in there?

  • In SQL Server 2012 try:

    ALTER DATABASE database_name

  • After some research , I have found the option that : Books online says the recommended alternative is to use the ALTER DATABASE command.

    The link below shows some helpful option and Replacement for system stored procedure sp_dboption in SQL Server 2012.

  • Hi George,

    do you have found any solution so far you can share?

    unfortunately copy of the missing sp from SQL2008R and creation in sql2012 (master) database does not work. When you try to create you get this error:
    The specified schema name "sys" either does not exist or you do not have permission to use it.

    I also feel that this missing sp will break/block migration to sql2012 for MANY existing applications!

    Even the actual 2013 preview of MIcrosoft ACM Server seems to have problems while trying to create a database in a sql2012 instance *lol*

  • I installed Sharepoint 2010 SP2 .. It added support to SQL 2012 and fixed the issue.
