We are announcing support changes for the following releases. Please look for these changes to be reflected in the Supported Configuration pages within a few months.

System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2 and R3 support Microsoft SQL Server 2012 (upgrade):

System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2 and System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3 now support upgrading an existing site database to Microsoft SQL Server 2012. 

The reporting services point site system and client status reporting feature in System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3 are also supported with SQL Server 2012.

To use SQL Server 2012 for the site database, you must upgrade the instance of SQL Server in use at a site from SQL Server 2008 or SQL Server 2008 R2 to SQL Server 2012.  It is not supported to install a new Configuration Manager 2007 SP2 site with SQL Server 2012. It is also not supported to install Configuration Manager 2007 R3 when SQL Server 2012 is in use for the site database. 

The following software updates are required to use SQL Server 2012 to host the site database:

  • This is good information. What about migrating from SCCM 2007 to SCCM 2012. I understand that this is a side-by-side migration but was wondering if we could have SQL Server 2012 installed on our new server and migrate data from our old server that has SQL Server 2008 R2.


  • Is it possible to detach de Database on an SQL 2005 server. And move the files to a new SQL 2012 Cluster and attach the database there?

    Or do i really need to upgrade my SQL 2005 server to SQL 2012?
