This article describes Cumulative Update package 5 (CU5) for SQL Server 2017. This update contains fixes that were released after the initial release of SQL Server 2017 and updates the SQL Server and Analysis services components to the following builds:
|Component||Build version||File version|
Cumulative updates (CU) are now available at the Microsoft Download Center.
Only the most recent CU that was released for SQL Server 2017 is available at the Download Center.
CU packages for Linux are available at https://packages.microsoft.com/.
- Each new CU contains all the fixes that were included in the previous CU for the installed version of SQL Server.
- SQL Server CUs are certified to the same levels as Service Packs, and should be installed at the same level of confidence.
- Microsoft recommends ongoing, proactive installation of CUs as they become available:
- 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.
- We recommend that you test CUs before you deploy them to production environments.
How to obtain this cumulative update package for Windows
If the download page does not appear, contact Microsoft Customer Service and Support to obtain the cumulative update package.
Note After future cumulative updates are released for SQL Server 2017, this and all previous CUs can be located and downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog. However, Microsoft recommends that you always install the latest cumulative update available.
