SQL Server 2014 Service Pack 1 release information

This article contains important information to read before you install Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Service Pack 1 (SP1). It describes how to obtain the service pack, the list of fixes that are included in the service pack, how to select the correct download based on your currently installed version, and a list of copyright attributions for the product.

Note This article serves as a single source of information to locate all documentation that is related to this service pack. It includes all the information that you previously found in the release notes and Readme.txt files.

Note If you are trying to update your instance from Cumulative Update 11 for SQL Server 2014 (build number 12.0.2560.0) to SQL Server Service Pack 1, the service pack setup fails because of binary mismatch between SQLServr.exe and qds.dll files and SQL Server cannot be started after that.

To work around the issue, use one of the following methods:

  • To continue staying on Cumulative Update 11 for SQL Server 2014, you can uninstall the incomplete Service Pack installation. To do this, use Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel and then restart SQL Server.
  • To upgrade to Service Pack 1 from CU11 and still retain the fixes through CU11, follow these steps:

    1. Uninstall CU11 by using Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel.
    2. Download and install SP1 from the download center at Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Service Pack 1 (SP1).
    3. Download and install CU4 for SP1 from Cumulative Update 4 for SQL Server 2014 SP1.

Resolutions to the following issues are also included in SQL Server 2014 SP1.

VSTS bug numberDescription
1957464RESTORE HEADERONLY for an Encrypted Backup file of the Database does not show whether the backup is encrypted or not.
After you apply SP1, the output of RESTORE HEADONLY will include three additional columns: KeyAlgorithm, EncryptorThumbprint and EncryptorType that can give additional details about the encrypted backup. For more information, see RESTORE HEADERONLY topic in SQL Server Books Online.
2366022SQL Server setup required the .NET Framework 3.5 when you install SQL Server 2014 Express Edition (with Database Engine only) on Windows 8. It is now skipped when you install this kind of media.
2535853/qs option requires user input when you install Express packages of SQL Server 2014 RTM.
2580641Invalid query syntax in stored procedure when you drop an article that is published in
more than one publication.
2580651Peer-to-peer (P2P) conflict messages require additional details.

Note After you apply SP2 for 2012 or SP1 for 2014, the error message 22815 will have the information on Table Name, Primary Key (s), Current Version, Pre Version and Post Version. Apart from Table Name and Primary Key(s), Post Version exists for all three types of conflict (delete, update and insert). Current Version is not applicable for delete conflict type and PreVersion is not applicable for exist for insert conflict type.
2580686Update-Update conflicts in P2P replication when updates are made to text column by using UPDATE or WRITE.
2580693Incorrect results when you work with block mode unary operators.
2580746DPM’s full backup on the server with AlwaysOn secondary will be converted to copy_only backup
2581191Merge Replication logging improvement:
To help troubleshoot merge replication performance issues, add the output of TraceFlag 101 when the output verbose level for the merge agent is set to 4.
2581192Transaction Replication logging improvement:
To help troubleshoot transaction replication performance issues, add verbose message to the stats in history tables and more detailed messages in the agent logs.
2581222SSMS Crashes during Movement of Maintenance Plan tasks if the Maintenance Plan name the first SUB_PLAN name are the same.
2581197The end SCOPE statement does not match the opening SCOPE statement.
2581377"ACTIONABLE_HEAP_CORRUPTION" when SSRS configuration file is parsed by using an invalid InstanceId.
2581382Provides platform information in the log of SSRS 2014
2733205"Action <name> was not found" message when selecting Facets option from the context menu of a Report Server instance in object explorer

3506361Some shared components could not be patched for later servicing when SSDT BI version 12.0.2299.1 and SQL Server 2014 are installed side by side.
3731350When you use features that rely on log pool cache (for example, Always On) on systems with multiple sockets, you may notice high values for "log write waits" counter. Before SP1, you have to enable trace flag T9024 to activate the fix for this issue in SQL Server 2014. Starting SP1, you do not have to manually add the trace flag, as the fix is already included. For more information, see FIX: High "log write waits" counter value on an instance of SQL Server 2012.
3732057When your instance of SQL Server is handling thousands of connection resets because of connection pooling, performance problems occur when database lock activity increases in SQL Server. The issue is fixed in CU1 for SQL Server 2014, and you have to add a trace flag T1236 to start parameters to activate the fix. Service Pack 1 for SQL Server 2014 includes this fix by default and you do not have to add any trace flags to activate the fix. For more information, see FIX: Performance problems occur when database lock activity increases in SQL Server.
3909490Error 4819 occurs for some combination of database schema and data when the fast load context (TF610) for bulk load and TF4199 are enabled.
