Note This build number of this cumulative update package is 11.0.2332.0.
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 2012 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 2012 hotfixes are now multilingual. Therefore, there is only one cumulative hotfix package for all languages.
- One cumulative hotfix package includes all the component packages. The cumulative update package updates only those components that are installed on the system.
- When you install the Cumulative update package 3 for SQL Server 2012, following statement on the "SQL Server 2012 Update" page is incorrect:
"This installation provides updates for SQL Server 2012 Community Technology Preview (August CTP)".
This statement should read as follows:
“This installation provides updates for SQL Server 2012”
Note Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem with the installation package.
How to obtain Cumulative Update 3 for SQL Server 2012A 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 2012 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.
