SCSM 2012 Web Part on Windows Server 2012

I've recently encountered one of the strangest flaw on SCSM 2012, and it's installing all of Service Manger 2012 Web Part on Windows Server 2012. 

So let's review the requirements:

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 RTM or with SP1
  • IIS 7.5 with IIS 6 metabase compatibility installed
  • Self-signed SSL certificate
  • ASP.NET 2.0
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0
  • Microsoft Analysis Management Objects
  • Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010
  • Or Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010
  • Or Microsoft SharePoint 2010 for Internet Sites Enterprise
  • Excel Services in SharePoint 2010 is required for hosting dashboards for advanced analytical reports

So to install Service Manger 2012, you're going to need Sharepoint 2010, may it be Foundation or Server. But note that Sharepoint 2010 only supports up to Windows Server 2008 R2. Even if you have SP1, still it's a no go. And Sharepoint 2013 is not supported by Service Manager 2012. 

So the answer to the question on can we install all of Service Manager 2012 Web Parts on Windows 2012? NO, you cannot install ALL Service Manager Web Parts until an SP2 for Sharepoint 2010 or Service Manager 2012 receives an SP2(that provides support for Sharepoint 2013). What you can do (if you still want to use Windows Server 2012) is to have a separate Sharepoint Server on Windows 2008 R2 and let it host the Sharepoint Web Part.
