HP SIM 7.5(7.5.1) and MS SQL 2008 R2 SP2/SP3 compatibility

Hi All,

Does anybody have good experience with using HP SIM 7.5 and Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2/SP3 ?

Currenly we are considering upgrading from HP SIM 7.3 Update 4 to HP SIM 7.5 but unfortunately at the moment do not have license to migrate existing database to at least Microsoft SQL Server 2012.

As stated in the "HP Insight Management 7.5 Support Matrix" document Microsoft SQL Server 2008 SP4 is supported with the folowing annotation:
"Installation using Microsoft SQL 2008 SP4 returns an unsupported database warning, which must be ignored for the installation to complete successfully."

Unfortunately, there is no information regarding Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 compatibility.

 

For the sake of completeness we use HP Proliant server and Windows 2008 R2 SP1 as CMS platform.

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,

You can also use the local SQL included with the installer. If your environement is not to large you can use the express SQL.

I that case you should do a clean install. Perhaps a migration is also possible but then you have to change your config files to point to the new database and you need to move the database.

 

Kind regards,

MS SQL 2008 R2 SP3 seems to be working correctly with HP SIM 7.5 but is not officially supported.

Please take into consideration that you are doing it on your own risk.
