System Center 2012 with Windows 2012 and SQL Server 2012


I spent this week doing tests of System Center with Windows Server 2012 2012.

SQL Server tests with 2012 had already made previously, including already implemented and documented the lack of SRSS in

Summary table of Incompatibilities

Follows an array of compatbilidade and problems between the System Center suite 2012 with Windows and SQL Server 2012 2012:

System Center 2012 Windows Server 2012 SQL Server 2012
ConfigMgr (SCCM) Partial (WSUS) Partial

(Reporting Services)

OpsMgr (SCOM) Partial

(Web Console)


(Reporting Services)

Orchestrator (SCO) Ok Ok
App Controller (SCA) Not compatible Ok
Service Manager (SCSM) Partial

(Self Portal)


(Reporting Services)

Data Protection (DPM) Ok Ok
Virtual Machine Mgr (VMM) Partial

(Self Portal)


It is important that these incompatibilities, especially concerning the problems with be IIS and Windows WSUS 2012 will be resolved in Service Pack 1 of System Center 2012 (currently in Beta), as can be seen in and and

Table of Technical Incompatibilities

For those who want to know the technical details of the incompatibilities, follows a summary of the issues that noticed in implementations:

Affected Products Windows/SQL Feature Explanation
SCOM, SCSM, AppControler, VMM


Portal Web

IIS 8.5 IIS has different APIs for 8.5 release of .NET Framework 4.5 and System Center is built on the .NET 4.0 which generates incompatibilities with WCF and ISAPI

As these products have web portal, fail to install on IIS



Update Services (SUP)

WSUS The current WSUS (Windows 2008 R2) is version 3.2 and WSUS on Windows version 2012 is 6.2 and the SCCM Installer cannot detect as valid
SCCM, SCOM, VMM SQL Server Reporting Services (SRSS) The installers do not detect the SRSS 2012 SQL Server, you must install the SQL Server 2008 R2 STRSS on the same machine to use the SQL Server 2012



The conclusion that I come in this aspect is that it is not yet time to install the System Center 2012 in 2012 Windows servers outside of the laboratory, because with the SP1 Beta is well possible that future version of it are not updateable, which will entail in reinstall the entire environment. With respect to SQL Server 2012, I do not see problems in installing only temporarily the SRSS of SQL Server 2008 R2, which can then be quickly uninstalled and the change in the products is simple to be held.

  1. SCCM 2012 has WMI issues and will impact the management point role on Windows 2012 and SQL 2012.
