New Cumulative Updates For SQL Server 2008 R2

Hi SQL Server Folks,

On Feb 22, 2012, Microsoft released SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 Cumulative Update 5, which is Build 10.50.2806. This CU has 16 fixes listed. Below is the Lnik to download this-

 I think now you should be making plans to get off of the RTM branch, and get on to the SP1 branch for SQL Server 2008 R2, especially since a number of useful new DMVs were added to SP1. Another reason to get on SP1 is that Microsoft will eventually retire the RTM branch, leaving you on an “unsupported service pack” when that happens.

From the below link you can find the supoort cycle for MS SQL Server and their HotFixes for different versions.

As always, keep in mind that these Cumulative Updates are only for SQL Server 2008 R2, not for SQL Server 2008.

Cheers,

Gaurav !!!
