Configuration Manager 2012 RC now supports SQL 2008 R2

As of 03/12/11 you'll be pleased to know that SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 is now supported for use with Configuration Manager 2012 Release Candidate 1. 

In addition to Service Pack 1, you will also need to install Cumulative Update 3 (CU3) for SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1, as well as the hotfix described in KB2603910:

However, please note that the hotfix for SQL 2008 R2 has currently been pulled again for some reason and isn't available at the link above, I'll update this post when it is, until then you would need to contact MS to obtain the hotfix.

*Updated 12/12/11* The hotfix for SQL 2008 R2 is now available.  Thanks Mr Anonymous commentor.
