Hi Ravi - As long as SQL supports this version of Windows Server, then you are fine to use it on your data tier. I would be careful if you have SharePoint on this server though, because their requirements are much heavier than SQL's.

Thanks for the update, I verified the version, It's Windows Server 2008 R2 Standards SP1. Is there any requirement for the database server instance, we are using Winodws Server 2003 Standard Edition SP2?

Hi Ravi - We have someone who will try and repro this again now that we have your logs. Can you please let me know if you have SP1 installed on your instance of Windows Server 2008 R2? If not, that is a requirement and may account for the error you're seeing. Thanks.

I tried the configuration of TFS 2012, after installing the updates on the database server (Windows Server 2003) and applying the changes specified on the KB , Nothing seems to be working. Kindly please help me to resolve the issue.
