SEP on SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1
during the last days we tried to install the SEP database on a remote server with Windows Authentication. On the remote server a Windows 2008 R2 + SQL Server 2008 64-Bit Service Pack 1 is installed. SQL Service Pack 1 is required to get SQL Server up and running on Windows 2008 R2.
After a quick review of the system requirements SQL Server 2008 is supported. We fought a couple of days and we were not abel to get it running. We tried mixed mode and everything worked fine but due to security reason wa have to use Windows Authentication. We opend a call and got a reply from Symantec that SQL Server 2008 is supported but Windows 2008 Server Pack 1 not as specified in the system requirements.
Ok I have to accept this reply but I still interested in the reason. What has been changed in SQL Servive Pack 1 which can cause SEP not installing. Is there anybody who can shed some light in this area or maybe a timeline when Service Pack 1 will be supported.
Thanks in advance
