In general, additional version support will be added only for the Native connector. However, you can make a feature request through Customer Support to have support added for the Unified connector.
Thanks for the clarification Ingrid.
Is there a technical reason why only the native SmartConnector supports SQL 2014? Moving forward, does HPe plan to only support new versions of Microsoft products through the Native mechanism?
I would like to bring in the events using the native WEF but am currently using the older Unified SmartConnector for all Windows based events. I therefore have a good understanding of what is required for Unified and know that I can easily implement the integration without implicating other IT teams within my organization.
Does the Unified SmartConnector for Microsoft SQL support SQL 2014?
Looking at the native SmartConnector guide, it states that SQL 2014 is supported... so I don't see why this one wouldn't support it as well since the event parsing is the same and only the collection mechanism is different.
