i am trying to automate sql 2012 installation and i dont want to install sql2012 and sp1 separately. I want it in 1 install file.
I am trying to slipstream sql2012 and sp1 installation similar to sql2008r2and sp2 http://blogs.msdn.com/b/petersad/archive/2011/07/13/how-to-slipstream-sql-server-2008-r2-and-a-sql-server-2008-r2-service-pack-1-sp1.aspx
Is there any way we can do this in sql 2012? or does MS release installer which has sql2012 with sp1 in it?
Sorry, I cannot answer your question. But I can say that you definitely do NOT want to stay on the initially-released SP1. There was a VERY nasty bug with that and Microsoft issued a MANDATORY patch for that build.
