In this recipe, we will see how to install SQL Server 2012.
For more information about SQL Server versions supported by Virtual Machine Manager 2012, see the Specifying the correct system requirements on a real-world scenario recipe in Chapter 1, VMM 2012 Architecture.
Assuming that you have already installed the operational system according to the SQL Server requirements of the SQL version you are installing, connect to the SQL Server (for example, vm2012-sql) machine.
SQL 2012 and SQL 2012 SP1 are only supported by VMM 2012 SP1. SQL AlwaysOn is also supported. See http://blogs.technet.com/b/scvmm/archive/2012/10/24/how-to-configure-sql-2012-alwayson-availability-groups-in-system-center-2012-virtual-machine-manager-service-pack-1.aspx ...
