I am pleased to announce support of SQL 2008 R2 with System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 databases. Support is divide into two phase so please read
Clean install of OM2007R2 on SQL 2008 R2.
Take a look at the KB to get OM2007R2 installed on a SQL 2008 R2 database server. In order to get the OM databases installed we had to go a different route from what's in the deployment guide so take a look at the KB.
Support upgrading SQL to SQL 2008 R2 with OM2007R2 already deployed.
Supporting this scenario will be coming as part of a future CU for R2. Stay tuned!
