SQL 2017 support?


What is the status of SQL 2017 being supported as the BigFix SQL DB of choice? I see it looks like only up to 2016 is currently supported: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SSQL82_9.5.0/com.ibm.bigfix.doc/Platform/Installation/c_database_requirements.html


Hello, I confirm that BigFix doesn’t support SQL Server 2017 yet. Qualification tests are ongoing, and support is tentatively scheduled to be announced in the May time-frame.


Thanks! Extra characters to get to 20.

So given that it’s now June. Is SQL 2017 supported yet?

Yes, MS SQL 2017 is now supported for the Root Server’s Database as of 9.5.13 (release notes for reference: https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/wikis/home?lang=en#!/wiki/90553c0b-42eb-4df0-9556-d3c2e0ac4c52/page/IBM%20BigFix%209.5.13%20Release%20Notes)

Thanks for the response. Since I’m still running v9.5.7 I’ll have to limit my SQL upgrade to 2016 for now.
