Taikoma: SQL Server 2014 EnterpriseSQL Server 2014 ExpressSQL Server 2014 Standard

This article describes cumulative update package 5 (build number: 12.0.5546.0) for Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Service Pack 2 (SP2). This update contains fixes that were released after the release of SQL Server 2014 SP2.

Cumulative update

Cumulative updates (CU) are now available at the Microsoft Download Center.

Only the most recent CU that was released for SQL Server 2014 SP2 is available at the Download Center.

  • Each new CU contains all the fixes that were included with the previous CU for the installed version/Service Pack of SQL Server.
  • Microsoft recommends ongoing, proactive installation of CUs as they become available:

    • SQL Server CUs are certified to the same levels as Service Packs, and should be installed at the same level of confidence.
    • Historical data shows that a significant number of support cases involve an issue that has already been addressed in a released CU.
    • CUs may contain added value over and above hotfixes. This includes supportability, manageability, and reliability updates.
  • Just as for SQL Server service packs, we recommend that you test CUs before you deploy them to production environments.
  • We recommend that you upgrade your SQL Server installation to the latest SQL Server 2014 service pack.
The following update is available from the Microsoft Download Center:

Note After future cumulative updates are released for SQL Server 2014 SP2, this CU can be located and downloaded from the Microsoft Windows Update Catalog. However, Microsoft recommends that you install the latest cumulative update available.
