AnnouncementLooks like the Operations Manager product team just announced that support for SQL 2008 R2 with System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 databases:

I am pleased to announce support of SQL 2008 R2 with System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 databases.  Support is divide into two phase so please read KB2425714 for details.

Phase 1: Clean install of OM2007R2 on SQL 2008 R2. 

Take a look at the KB to get OM2007R2 installed on a SQL 2008 R2 database server.  In order to get the OM databases installed we had to go a different route from what's in the deployment guide so take a look at the KB.

Phase 2: Support upgrading SQL to SQL 2008 R2 with OM2007R2 already deployed. 

Supporting this scenario will be coming as part of a future CU for R2.  Stay tuned!

You can get all the details straight from the source here.
