I have no choice. Our company does not support MySql. It's either Oracle or Sql Server and Oracle is way too expensive

atrol, why is MS SQL unrecommended? if it is an option on the install script, it should work without issue, yes?

andrea.mills, I never used MantisBT with MS SQL.
But after having a look at the open issues at www.mantisbt.org/bugs with category "MS SQL" I can't recommend it.
AFAIK none of the current core developers of MantisBT uses MS SQL when developing and most of the users don't use MS SQL.
So you can expect that there will be more problems when using MS SQL than using MySQL.
