A quick tip for all you guys wanting to install the Configuration Manager 2012 R2 site database on a server hosting SQL 2014.
When launching the installation and pointing to the SQL 2014 server, that version will be treated as unsupported and the installation won’t continue.
To get the installation to work you should do the following:
- Download this Microsoft KB: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3020755
- The KB contains 2 DLL files:
- Replace the 2 DLLs located in the Configuration Manager 2012 R2 installation source in the folder SMSSETUP\BIN\X64 with the 2 updated DLLs from the KB
- Launch the installation from the modified installation source
The installation will now continue and you will be able to install the Configuration Manager 2012 R2 site database on SQL 2014.
Hope this helps!
