  • SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 CU1 is now available!

    For those of you that held out on installing SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 because it was missing the fixes from RTM's Cumulative Updates 7 & 8, your wait is over - CU1 is here and it contains these fixes. I didn't verify this for every fix individually, but this is supposed to be the goal, so I'm going to take a leap of faith here. You ...

  • SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 is now available

    And the hits keep coming! Microsoft not only released Denali CTP3 today, they have also released Service Pack 1 for SQL Server 2008 R2, which was first released as a CTP back in April (build 10.50.2425). If you installed the CTP, SELECT @@VERSION will yield something similar to the following: Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 (SP1) - ...

  • More changes you might not have noticed in SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 CTP

    On Friday, after Microsoft released the CTP, I talked a little bit about the changes you will see in SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1. Namely: new rowcount-related columns in sys.dm_exec_query_stats; extended functionality of the FORCESEEK query hint; a new FORCESCAN query hint; support for 15,000 partitions (to match new ...

  • SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 CTP is now available

    Just as I was about to shut my machine down on a Friday, Microsoft goes and releases something we've been waiting on for a long time: a Community Technology Preview (CTP) for Service Pack 1 is finally available for testing! I want to talk about a couple of things that are included in this update that may be of interest [update: I've added a lot ...

  • Cumulative Update #7 for SQL Server 2008 R2 is available

    Many of you are probably asking, ''Where is Service Pack 1 already?'' Patience, friends. It will come in due time. In the meantime, you can see if any of the fixes in CU7 for RTM are applicable to symptoms you are experiencing (there are 33 fixes in total, so look carefully):KB #2507770 : Cumulative Update #7 for SQL Server 2008 R2 The build ...

  • 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 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 ...
