Clarification on SQL Server Collation Requirements for System Center 2012

We have published a new blogpost on the System Center: Operations Manager Engineering Team Blog about SQL Server Collation Requirements.


“There has been quite a bit of confusion over the requirements for SQL Server collation for the various components of System Center. We didn’t make a coordinated effort here to make this as easy as it could and should be. The documentation has conflicts within itself in some cases. We will be cleaning up the documentation over the next few days so that it is consistent and clear. Since the documentation is still component focused, we want to take this opportunity to provide a holistic view of the SQL Server collation requirement across the suite. This will hopefully clear things up and over time it will become even clearer as we make changes in the product itself to be consistent on this requirement.”
