SQL Server 2012 SP4 on Windows Server 2019

The article: [Using SQL Server in Windows 8 and later versions of Windows operating system][1] claims that SQL Server 2012 SP4 is compatible with Windows Server 2019, but I also see that Windows Server 2019 is not listed as a Supported Operating System in the System Requirements on the Microsoft® SQL Server® 2012 Service Pack 4 (SP4) download page: [details.aspx][2]. Is it possible to install SQL Server 2012 SP4 on Window Server 2019? Thanks.

Hi @MatthewMasotti-5130,

Is it possible to install SQL Server 2012 SP4 on Window Server 2019?

Yes, it is possible. You can install SQL Server 2012 SP4 on Window Server 2019.

Windows server 2019 is released at November 13, 2018, but the SP4 for SQL 2012 package was published at 10/3/2017 and did not update the information any more. So Windows server 2019 is not in the OS supported list. But the MS document Using SQL Server in Windows 8 and later versions of Windows operating system was updated at 09/17/2020. So Windows server 2019 is listed.

Refer to List of Microsoft Windows versions.
