  • More Cumulative Updates available for SQL Server 2008

    Looks like dozens of fixes for SQL Server 2008 have made their way into another cumulative rollup; CU3 for SP1 (build 2723), and CU6 for RTM (build 1812).  You can get them here: Cumulative Update 3 for SP1: Cumulative Update 6 for RTM: So what are the main ...

  • SQL Server 2008 SP1 Cumulative Update 2 is available!

    Most importantly, this update includes the new trace flag that will allow users running Standard Edition to enable Locked Pages in Memory.  This is a huge win for a lot of customers out there.  You can read about this specific enhancement in this blog post by Bob ...

  • SQL Server 2008 SP1 Cumulative Update 1 is available!

    If you were among those who installed CU4 for SQL Server 2008, then installed SP1, you may not know that you lost some of the fixes that came with CU4 (see Bob Ward's post which is slightly more informative than the release notes). Microsoft today released a post-SP1 cumulative update that adds back all of these fixes.  There is nothing else ...

  • I talked about Resource Governor (again)

    Last night I gave my Resource Governor spiel at the New England SQL Server User Group meeting in Waltham, MA.  About 60 people were in attendance.  Unlike the last few times I've presented this technology to an audience (because friends and co-workers don't count), there seemed to be much more genuine interest... I think this has largely ...

  • SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 is now available!

    No, this is not a late April Fool's joke; SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 is finally gold.  The final release of SP1 is build 10.00.2531.00, and is available from the Microsoft Download Center: Cumulative Updates 1, 2 and 3 are included in this ...

  • SQL Server 2008 Cumulative Update 4 is available

    If you are running SQL Server 2008 and haven't yet installed the SP1 CTP, you may want to check out Cumulative Update 4 (build 1798) in KB #963036.  You obviously won't be able to install the hotfix if you already have the SP1 CTP, even though the new cumulative update contains some fixes that aren't in SP1 (and won't be when it is ...

  • SQL Server 2008 SP1 setup is a little confused

    Of course, it is always annoying when we have to restart a machine or stop a service to service software.  I get annoyed when little updates to non-integral pieces of Windows prompt me to reboot; leave me alone and force me to reboot when you actually need those files.  Or be smarter about ''in-place replace'' (if that concept makes ...

  • SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 : CTP is available!

    Yes, you read that right; for those of you waiting to try SQL Server 2008 until SP1 is available, we are one step closer.  You can download the CTP from the following URL: The CTP will bring your instance to build # 10.00.2520. Thumbs up on finally ...

  • Visual Studio 2008 SP1 (RTM) is now available [UPDATE]

    Now that you can get Visual Studio 2008 SP1 RTM, you probably want to rush out and install it.  I would hold off on that until you read Bob Ward's blog entry, which explains the situation, and should help clear up some confusion on whether you need to install anything: SQL Server 2008, Visual Studio 2008 SP1, and .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 ...
