W2K8 SP2 and SQL Server 2008 Express supported?


I am preparing to install BES 5 for the first time.  I just completed installing the OS, Windows Server 2008 Ent. Ed. 64-bit.  I am wondering the following:


1.  Is SP2 for Windows Server 2008 supported?  Are there any known issues with BES 5?

2.  It looks as though SQL Server 2008 Express Ed. 2008 (64-bit) is not currently supported by RIM. However, I saw another post in this forum stating that RIM T Support said SQL 2008 Exp. IS supported under BES 5 MR1?  Is this correct?


Thanks in advance.

Look at the compatability chart.



I heard the same on SQL 2008 being supported but can not find a KB on it.
