SQL 2008 R2 support for Operations Manager 2007 R2

Many customers have been asking for the support of SQL 2008 R2 and Operations Manager 2007 R2.

Today we relased a KB on how to do a clean install or an upgrade to SQL 2008R2 while running Operations Manager 2007 R2.

KB Link is : - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2425714

Be advised the KB ONLY covers Operations Manager 2007 R2 and NOT SP1 installations.

For the Audit Collection System (ACS) it's not supported to do an upgrade, only a new clean install is supported.
