    Prerequisites for SIMS installation and any tutorial to install SQL server for SIMS

    Hi

    I have SIMS on Windows 2003 and planning to migrate to 2012R2 and I am planning to install SQL server 2012. On my Microsoft portal there are many SQL versions.
    I am not clear of the SQL version I need to install. Is it SQL Server Standard 2008 R2 ?
    Please let me know the prerequisites for SIMS installation and any tutorial to install SQL server for SIMS will be helpful.

    Many thanks
    .

    I don't deal with SIMS here but I know you need to install SQL 2012 if you want to be current.

    Definitely go with 2012 as capita are stopping support for 2008 soon. Other than that @matt40k blog says it all.
