SQL Server 2012 service pack 2 released in June of this year and brought with it some significant improvements in various areas including:

  • AlwaysOn
  • Analysis Services
  • Integrations Services
  • Relational Engine
  • Replication
  • Reporting Services
  • Storage Engine

When a new service pack releases for SQL Server, Microsoft will generally provide a 90-day window for testing for System Center products before deeming the service pack safe to use. Yesterday, just a bit longer than the 90-day goal, SQL Server 2012 service pack 2 was proposed as ready and safe – at least for System Center Service Manager.
