Is SharePoint 2010 supported on SQL server 2012 SP2?



As a short answer: Yes, It's supported,

In order to use Microsoft SQL Server 2012 SP2, you must use SharePoint 2010 SP1 or later of SharePoint Server 2010!


In order to maintain SharePoint and SQL Server compatibility Microsoft use the “SharePoint N-1 on SQL Server N+1” equation to determine version support. Using SharePoint Server 2010 as an example, the N release of SQL Server is 2008/2008 R2 and N+1 is SQL Server 2012.

  • The N in the above example refers to the SQL Server version, not the updates or service packs.

Based on the above N equation, the SharePoint 2010 SP 1 is supported on SQL Server 2012, so it also supported on SQL Server 2012 SP1 and SP2 ...etc
