I've been trying to set up a test environment for SCCM 2012 beta, but there is one pre-requisite that I cannot satisfy: "SQL Server version - Failed" the reason provided is "Configuration Manager sites require SQL server 2008 SP1 with Cumulative
Update 10 or higher for site database operations to succeed. SQL Server 2008 SP2 and SQL server 2008 R2 are not supported"
Well, on my first attempt, I had made the mistake of installing SQL 2008 R2. No problem, just blew it away and started over. Now I have been working with SQL 2008, and I've downloaded the three patches that SCCM states are required: SP1,
hotfix KB977443, and cumulative update 10.
This is where things get interesting. If I apply SP1 and KB977443, when I attempt to install CU10, it says there are no instances that need the update, so naturally, when I attempt to install SCCM I get the error about incorrect SQL version.
If I try apply CU10 before SP1, I can install the update, but I still get the wrong SQL version error and cannot install SCCM.
I think my problem is 95% about getting my SQL instance to allow me to install CU10 after patching up to the SP1 level. Any advice here is welcome.
