Master Data Services first cumulative update is now available!

We have assembled a new release that addresses a number (30+) of issues that we could not address before the SQL Server 2008 R2 RTM release.  Everyone who is seriously considering Master Data Services or even kicking the tires is encouraged to take this update.  Anyone actively using the product is encouraged to take this release as well.

Here is the location of the KB Article:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2143880

Note: This is a full installation msi.  You can install this MSI on a new server or an existing server that runs the RTM version of Master Data Services. If you apply this to an existing server, you will need to update your MDS database by using Master Data Services Configuration Manager after you install the MSI. Open Configuration Manager, and click Upgrade Database to do this.

Master Data Services is a feature of the versions and editions of SQL Server listed in Setup Requirements (Master Data Services). Any computer where you install Master Data Services must be licensed accordingly. For more information, refer to the End User License Agreement (EULA).

FYI - In case anyone else runs into this, to install on 2008 Server I had to run the package as an administrator.  To do that I had to launch a command-prompt as administrator and then run the install via command-line:

msiexec /i "MasterDataServices.msi"

Hope this helps.

The hotfix KB article you link to above sends you to a hotfix download page with two downloads:

SQL_Server_2008_R2_Cumulative_Update_2_MD_Services

SQLServer2008R2_RTM_CU2_2072493_10_50_1720_x64

The first one contains an MSI for Master Data Services.  I don't see any instructions as to how to install these.  Am I right in assuming that the latter is a general CU for SQL, and I should install that first?  Do I then also have to run the Master Data Services MSI?  

Thanks.

Yes, select the SQL_Server_2008_R2_Cumulative_Update_2_MD_Services for Master Data Services.  You can apply the general SQL Server update as well, but this is not required.

Argyris, This update may not be used with CTP.  There is no automatic upgrade path supported from the CTP.
