INTRODUCTION

This article describes cumulative update package 4 for Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1). This update contains hotfixes for issues that were fixed after the release of SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1.

Note The build of this cumulative update package is known as build 10.50.2796.0.

We recommend that you test hotfixes before you deploy them in a production environment.

We recommend that you consider applying the most recent update release that contains this hotfix.
