Installing SQL Server 2008 R2 for SCCM 2012


The current supported configuration of SQL Server for System Center 2012 Configuration Manager (SCCM), is Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 with Service Pack 1 and Cumulative Update 4. I always use unattended installation of SQL (and anything else if possible). Here are the command lines I uses to setup SQL for ConfigMgr 2012:

    Hi Ronnie, this was extremely usefull and saved me a ton of time , my thanks.

    I installed on a 2008 R2 host: Some edits I had to make in order for it to fully process are shown below, this was mainly missing back slashes around NT AUTHORITYSYSTEM and BUILTINADMINISTRATORS. Full edit below, which ran like a charm. Would not have got that far if it wasnt for this post however, cheers!
