Hi Ben, As of today TMS 13.x version has been tested and working fine with SQL 2008 versions.
I am not sure if TMS 13.x version is tested with SQL 2012. If you are planning to use external SQL 2012 please refer to the Installation guide page no. 8, section " Database permission requirements" and if the TMSNG database collation is created accordingly it should work.
The TMS 13.x installer will stop you if you try to point it to a SQL Server 2012 instance. Using SQL 2012 is not possible today.
TMS generally aims to support the two latest major SQL Server versions. We support 2005 and 2008 right now, but SQL Server 2012 support will certainly come in a future release. We haven't decided in which specific release we'll add 2012 support, but it will not be in our next major release (14.1).

The below trick might come handy when you have to add a new node to a cluster but you don't have or is unsure of the security password for the publisher. This procedure has been around for ages.
1) Login into the CLI of the Publisher.
