The SQL Server team has released CU #6 for Service Pack 1.
- KB article: KB #2874879
- Build # is 11.0.3381
- This build has 23 fixes by my count. The most interesting (to me) are:
The latter, most importantly, because it altered the way we approached collecting certain extended event information regarding Availability Groups in SQL Sentry v7.5.
Also interesting to note that neither KB indicates these issues are present in the RTM branch. I suspect they won't reflect this until they're updated in a month with similar fixes for RTM. Of course, if you're still on RTM, you should start thinking about migrating to the SP1 branch.
- KB #2877100 : FIX: A memory leak occurs when you enable AlwaysOn Availability Groups or SQL Server failover cluster in Microsoft SQL Server 2012
- KB #2878139 : FIX: "Using 'dbghelp.dll' version '4.0.5'" error is logged in SQL Server 2012 when a statement or job executes the sys.fn_xe_file_target_read_file stored procedure
Relevant for builds 11.0.3000 -> 11.0.3380. Do not attempt to install on SQL Server 2012 RTM (any build < 11.0.3000) or any previous version.
