SQL Server Guide for System Center 2012

Some time ago I have an issue where a customer was complaining that the performance of their SCCM install was not what they were expecting.  Upon closer inspection there SQL environment was not what we had agreed upon to host their SCCM SQL data bases.

After much discussion I decided to take it upon myself to write a guide to SQL with the following goals 

  1. Provide some SQL guidance to the System Center community on how to install and troubleshoot SQL.
  2. Correlate as much information on SQL for all the products into one single guide. 
You can be the judge if the guide helps you but it has been well received by the community.

Best wishes 


You can download the guide here


  1. Thank you Paul! looked for that for a long time.

  2. This is great, when do you think you will be able to make an update with SQL 2012? I'm interested in seeing what performance changes or clustering recommendations would you make for that version.
