  • In the chart above it mentions SCOM2012SP1 UR5. UR4 just came out a month ago. Is this a typo?

  • Do you have info on the console interop? Trying to see if the R2 console can connect to an SP1 UR4 mgmt group...

  • Hi,
    Please, AFAIK, Only System Center 2012 R2 can manage Windows Server 2012 R2. I see here that SC 2012 SP1 can manage Widows Server 2012 R2. On the Technet Library, the link indicates that WS 2012 R2 is not supported for SC 2012 SP1 http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj628214.aspx
