KB2723749 - Cumulative update package 3 for SQL Server 2012

INTRODUCTION

This article describes cumulative update package 3 for Microsoft SQL Server 2012. This update contains hotfixes for issues that were fixed after the release of SQL Server 2012.

Note  This build number of this cumulative update package is 11.0.2332.0.

We recommend that you test hotfixes before you deploy them in a production environment. Because the builds are cumulative, each new fix release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2012 fix release. We recommend that you consider applying the most recent fix release that contains this hotfix.

Important notes about the cumulative update package

  • SQL Server 2012 hotfixes are now multilingual. Therefore, there is only one cumulative hotfix package for all languages.

  • One cumulative hotfix package includes all the component packages. The cumulative update package updates only those components that are installed on the system.

  • When you install the Cumulative update package 3 for SQL Server 2012, following statement on the "SQL Server 2012 Update" page  is incorrect:

    "This installation provides updates for SQL Server 2012 Community Technology Preview (August CTP)".

    This statement should read as follows:

    “This installation provides updates for SQL Server 2012”

    Note Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem with the installation package.
