DataService 4.2 Does Not Support SQL Server 2012 or Windows Server 2012?


Now that DataServices 4.2 has been made available everyone I'm in the process of setting up a test environment to see how our data flows will migrate.

In reading over the PAM for DataService 4.2, I'm shocked that there is no support for SQL Server 2012, or installation on Windows Server 2012.

Am I missing something here? Why are the latest versions of the SQL Server platform and Windows Server platform not being supported by DataService 4.2?

SQL Server 2012 was released on March 6, 2012

Windows Server 2012 was released on September 4, 2012

These are mature and stable environments that I am sure many SAP users would like to migrate to, however without formal support I am wondering if this is possible at this point.

Has anyone been successful in connecting DS 4.2 to a SQL Server 2012 database? How about installing DS 4.2 on Windows 2012? Is there some reason why SAP has chosen to ignore these products?
