SQL 2008 R2

Hi,

 

I know SQL 2008 R2 is not on the official supported list however has anyone done any testing with it?

 

If so does it all work ok with 7.5.2, is there anythig to be aware of or different to plain old SQL 2008?

 

Many thanks for any information.

We have been running our live 7.5.2 on it for a week now without any problems. The database engine is barely changed from 2008, most of the R2 changes are related to reporting services and BI.

Hi,

 

Many thanks for the info, I assume there is nothing different in the connectivity to 2008?

We just installed the R2 native client on the machines however no changes needed in the connection manager and a few machines are still using the old SQL 2008 native client with no problems.
