SQL server 2008 R2 with Windows Server 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    Today morning for some urgent requirement, I tried installing SQL server 2008 R2 on windows Server 2012 machine and got compatibility issues. Researched on internet and got to know that SP1/SP2 for SQL server would be required in order to install it on Windows server 2012.

    So, started slip streaming the setup file of SQL server. Downloaded SP2 and followed below mentioned link.
    http://blogs.msdn.com/b/petersad/archive/2011/07/13/how-to-slipstream-sql-server-2008-r2-and-a-sql-server-2008-r2-service-pack-1-sp1.aspx

    But, the command mentioned in the blog to extract SP2 files are not getting recognized by command prompt on Windows Server 2012. So, any help in order to help me extracting these files would be appreciated.

  • Hi,

    I understand you got compatibility issues when trying installing SQL Server 2008 R2 on Windows Server 2012. Per KB 2681562: Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 or a later update is required to install SQL Server 2008 R2 on Windows Server 2012.

    Note The RTM installation of the product is supported. However, you have to install the respective service packs after the initial setup is complete. You will see the following message on the Solution Center page:

    Thanks.

    Service Pack doesn't need subscriptions. It's free.
