Cumulative update package 6 for SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 2

INTRODUCTION

Cumulative update package 6 for Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 2 (SP2) contains hotfixes for the SQL Server 2008 issues that were resolved after the release of SQL Server 2008 SP2.

Note This build of the cumulative update package is also known as build 10.00.4321.0.

We recommend that you test hotfixes before you deploy them in a production environment. Because the builds are cumulative, each new update release contains all the hotfixes and all the security updates that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 update release. We recommend that you consider applying the most recent update release that contains this hotfix.

Important notes about the cumulative update package

  • Each SQL Server 2008 cumulative update package now supports multiple languages. Therefore, one cumulative update package can be applied to any supported language.
  • One cumulative update package includes updates for all the component packages. However, the cumulative update package updates only those components that are installed on a system.

How to obtain cumulative update package 6 for SQL Server 2008 SP2

A supported cumulative update package is now available from Microsoft. However, it is intended to correct only the problems that are described in this article. Apply it only to systems that are experiencing these specific problems. This cumulative update package may receive additional testing. Therefore, if you are not severely affected by any of these problems, we recommend that you wait for the next SQL Server 2008 service pack that contains the hotfixes in this cumulative update package.

If the cumulative update is available for download, there is a "Hotfix download available" section at the top of this Knowledge Base article. If this section does not appear, contact Microsoft Customer Service and Support to obtain the cumulative update package.

Note If additional issues occur or any troubleshooting is required, you might have to create a separate service request. The usual support costs will apply to additional support questions and issues that do not qualify for this specific cumulative update package. For a complete list of Microsoft Customer Service and Support telephone numbers or to create a separate service request, visit the following Microsoft website: Note The "Hotfix Download Available" form displays the languages for which the cumulative update is available. If you do not see your language, it is because a cumulative update package is not available for that language.
