vcenter 6 u2 install question

Can vcenter 6 be installed and used with SQL 2012?

As of right now, vcenter is using the default (postgres) I believe DB that was installed during the vsphere 6 install.

Update_Manager and SRM will use the SQL 2012 DB.

Is it possible to place vsphere 6 (vcenter) on SQL 2012 too)
Could this of been done during install
and now that it is using postgres can I migrate it over to SQL 2012

Yes, vCenter Server supports Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server databases.

As of right now, vcenter is using the default (postgres) I believe DB that was installed during the vsphere 6 install.

if you accept defaults, and do not specify an external database, e.g. SQL.

Yes.

There is not currently a supported method to move Postgres to SQL.

I would recommend a new installation.
