Microsoft Product Support Services does not recommend or support the use of Microsoft SQL Server 7.0 (either in native mode or in SQL Server 6.5 compatibility mode) as the database engine for Systems Management Server 1.2.


Architectural changes in SQL Server 7.0 introduce incompatibilities between SQL Server 7.0 and Systems Management Server 1.2. Microsoft has confirmed this to be a limitation of Systems Management Server version 1.2, and is currently investigating possible resolutions for a future service pack.
