    vCenter 6.0 U2 with SQL Server 2014 SP2 (SP1 end of life)

    beefy147 Enthusiast

      I am running vCenter 6.0 U2 on windows with SQL DB on SQL Server 2014 SP1


      This version of SQL is now out of support as of last month. I see that SQL server 2014 SP2 is not supported for vCenter 6.0 / VUM 6.0 or SRM 6.0


      I also see that upgrading to SQL 2016 RTM or SP1 is not an option either (not supported by VMware)


      Infact the only supported option is the backwards step of SQL Server 2012 SP3 (which goes out of support in 2018)


      We have a supported platform until 2020 with 6.0 and while we look to upgrade to 6.5 at some point in the next 18 months this doesn't help me today!


      Any ideas?
