FIX: The DBCC CHECKFILEGROUP statement does not check a partitioned object if one of the partitions is not presented in the filegroup being checked in SQL Server 2008

Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2008 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 fix release.
SYMPTOMS
Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a partitioned object in Microsoft SQL Server 2008, such as a partitioned table or a partitioned index.
  • You run the DBCC CHECKFILEGROUP statement to check the allocation and structural integrity of one of the filegroups and one of the partitions is not presented in the filegroup being checked.
In this scenario, the partitioned object is not checked.
