SQLAuthority News – Download – Cumulative Update Package for SQL Server 2008

SQL Server 2008 has been out for over two years and now a very significant Cumulative Update has been released. If you are using SQL Server 2008 then you must certainly install it to fix the various bugs.

Cumulative Update 3 for SP1: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971491

Cumulative Update 6 for RTM: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971490

I heavily recommend this update.

Feel free to talk to me if you want more information on it.

  1. 2 years! Not sure where you have that number from, but I’m pretty sure RTM was around 6th August 2008, less than a year ago :)

  2. Hi Pinal,

    I have tried to apply CU2 and CU3 on SQL Server 2008 SP1, but all the time I am getting this error:

    “There are no SQL Server Instances or shared features that can be updated on this computer”

    I have both the default instance and named instance, but both are not detected by the CU installer.

    Could you please help me ASAP.

    Thanks in adv. for your time.

  3. Anyone ever find a resolution for the “There are no SQL Server instances or shared features that can be updated on this computer.” message? I’m attempting to apply the latest Cumulitave update number 7 and am running into that. I cannot sleect any features to upgrade after starting the CU update package.

    Thanks!

    • hi Tim,

      I think you must be applying wrong patch / update. Make sure for 86 (32 bit) or 64 bit versions.
      Please update the forum with your result.

      Thanks.

      Shoaib
