INTRODUCTION

This article discusses the support for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 that runs on a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 database.

MORE INFORMATION

The support is divided into two phases. Phase one supports new installations of System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2. Phase two supports upgrading an existing System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 deployment to run on a SQL Server 2008 R2 database. The existing deployment has database roles hosted on a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 (SP3) server or on a Microsoft SQL 2008 Service Pack 1 (SP1) server.

This article talks about the support for phase one. Please see KB2449679 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2449679) for support on phase two.

Known issues
