Support older versions of SQL Server
Please reintroduce support for SQL Server 2016 Enterprise.
Recent versions of Octopus only support SQL Server 2017+. SQL Server 2016 (SP2) still has mainstream Microsoft support until July 2021 and extended support until July 2026. It is very expensive for organisations to run and support multiple editions of Highly Available Enterprise SQL clusters and is consequently a barrier for upgrading to the latest Octopus version for my organisation. My organisation is a large enterprise in a heavily regulated industry so our software must be supported platforms, I am sure many of your enterprise customers would benefit from this.
We have relaxed the restrictions on SQL Server from SQL Server 2017+ to SQL Server 2016+ in the latest patch release of Octopus Server 2020.2 and 2020.3.
This has taken affect from the following versions
2020.1.x (SQL Version change was not enforced in 2020.1.x)
2020.2.18 ➜ 2020.2.latest
2020.3.6 ➜ 2020.3.latest
2020.4.0 ➜ latest
