SQL Server 2012 AlwaysOn Support for System Center 2012 SP1 products


During my project I tried to find out which System Center 2012 SP1 products support SQL Server 2012 AlwaysOn functionality . I took me quite some time after browsing all products for supported configuration I finally found following technet article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj628198.aspx  which provides exactly the information I was looking for.

 

SQL Server 2012 AlwaysOn Support

In System Center 2012 SP1, SQL Server 2012 AlwaysOn is supported in the following components:

  • App Controller
  • Operations Manager
  • Orchestrator
  • Service Manager
  • VMM

SQL Server AlwaysOn is not supported with Data Protection Manager (DPM) and Configuration Manager.

 

A Word document describing SQL Server 2012 AlwaysOn can be found at SQL Server 2012 AlwaysOn: Multisite Failover Cluster Instance.

 

 

Hope this helps saving some time
