This article describes cumulative update package 9 for Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2. This update contains hotfixes for SQL Server 2008 R2 issues that have been fixed after the release of SQL Server 2008 R2.

Note The build of this cumulative update package is also known as build 10.50.1804.0.

We recommend that you test hotfixes before you deploy them in a production environment. Because the builds are cumulative, each new fix release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 R2 fix release. We recommend that you consider applying the most recent fix release that contains this hotfix.

Important notes about the cumulative update package

  • SQL Server 2008 R2 hotfixes are now multilingual. Therefore, the cumulative update package is not specific to one language and applies to all supported languages.

  • One cumulative update package includes all the component packages. However, the cumulative update package updates only those components that are installed on the system.
