  • Mis-steps in the publication of Cumulative Updates

    It used to be very difficult to obtain hotfixes for SQL Server (sometimes even to learn about their existence), and they were often unsupported.  They have made extremely great strides in this area, and in general, I find the new procedure much more convenient : just go to the KB article, select the fix(es) you want, and you get an almost ...

  • Installing Service Packs / Cumulative Updates on a SQL 2005 cluster

    In our environment, we run the task scheduler as a cluster resource, so that scheduled tasks always run on the active node.  (In ancient history, we would have scheduled tasks that weren't cluster aware - in the event of a failover, we'd have to manually disable task scheduler on the now passive node, and manually enable it on the active ...

  • SQL Server 2005 SP3 Cumulative Update 4 is available

    Microsoft quietly released another cumulative update for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 this week.  So quietly, in fact, that it took me 5 days to notice.  As Chad Miller noted in his comment, this is the first build of SQL Server 2005 that supports the ''lock pages in memory'' setting on Standard Edition.  You can read about the ...

  • UPDATE : SQL Server 2005 SP3 Cumulative Update 3 is available

    It seems this came out on April 20th, but I did not catch it at the time.  Better late than never, I guess.  As Sean Nolan pointed out in a previous post, CU#3 includes many of the fixes that were available in SP2 CU#13 and not in SP3 CU#2.  You can download the hotfix (which puts you to 9.0.4220) ...
