Is SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2 supported for vCenter 5.0 U1? SQL Server R2 SP1 is listed as a choice in the VMware Interop matrix, but R2 SP2 is not listed.

Yes, it's supported, they've just not updated the matrix yet!

if you look further 5.0 U2 has been tested!

Sometimes, VMware does not go back and test older versions with newer SP versions!

Hi hanccocka,

Thanks for the response. We are seting up a test environment to test it further before we install the SP2 for SQL Server.
Even for vCenter Server 5.1, SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2 is not listed in the VMware Interop matrix. We are planning to upgrade the vCenter server to vCenter Server 5.1 in couple of months.
