The SQL Server team has released SQL Server 2012 SP1 Cumulative Update #9.
Relevant for builds 11.0.3000 -> 11.0.3411. Do not attempt to install on SQL Server 2012 RTM (any build < 11.0.3000) or any other major version.
I have to be doing something wrong. So far on two test instances CU9 has only installed for Shared Features and not upgraded the SQL Service version. I remain at 11.0.3000
@Ismail must be; worked fine here on many instances. Anyway CU #10 should be out in the next ~10 days or so.
@AaronBertrand Interesting. We don't normally do CUs, but CU9 had a lot of interest from the developers. I just tried CU8 and have the same issue on multiple instances. So something is definitely wrong with our installs.
I've seen this happen when you have the 32 bit CU and try to apply it to a x64 server. If you d/l the hotfix from a 32 bit OS then you will be servers the 32 bit CU without asking which you want. Doh!
