    There are no plans for compatibility certification of Dynamics AX 4 SP2 with SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1. At the time of the certification for Dynamics AX 2009 SP1 and Dynamics AX 2012, mainstream support for Dynamics AX 4 SP2 had expired (was in extended support) and thus was not included in the compatibility matrix. For more information on the product support lifecycles and the differences between mainstream and extended support, please refer to

    It mentions here that AX 2012 is compatible, can I assume that this means AX 2012 and all CU's.

    In addition is SQL server 2008 R2 SP2 compatible with Connector for Microsoft Dynamics.
