Microsoft has released Cumulative Update #1 for SQL Server 2014.

  • KB Article: KB #2931693
  • 114 fixes listed at time of publication (121 total)
  • Build number is 12.0.2342
  • Relevant for @@VERSION 12.0.2000 through 12.0.2341

UPDATE 2014-05-05

The download links for the Cumulative Update packages have been restored over the weekend.

UPDATE 2014-04-26

It seems Microsoft has temporarily pulled CU #1 from the download servers. Don't fear, I'm sure it will be back soon; my initial theory was it was to remove this little snafu from the License Terms screen:

But that is actually *not* the case. There was an issue with the original CU that affected certain slipstream operations, and the CU has been pulled so that can be fixed. I still feel it will be restored very soon, just can't confirm if the new package will have the same file names / @@VERSION. I can confirm that the above typo, where the update is stated to be for SQL Server 2014 Service Pack 1 (which obviously doesn't exist yet), will NOT be fixed in this CU.

You can see the KB article and the Release Services blog for more info.

    An issue that affected Cumulative Update 1 for Microsoft SQL Server 2014 had previously caused us to remove the update from the download server. We have now resolved the issue, and the update is again available for download.

    Ya know, I tried to drop that into the updates folder and run this as a slipstream, and swore I had it set the same as I did for my 2012 installer.  When I commented out the updates, the config-file install that I had worked no problem, and the CU installed without issue after the install.  I'm glad I came across this, Thanks Aaron!

    The KB article now mentions an issue when you slipstream the CU with the RTM.

    @mrk My theory is that it's been pulled temporarily, but not for any alarming reasons, just to remove the "Service Pack 1" reference from the agreement screen. I'll post an update when I know more.

    interesting, when I click the 'hotfix download available' link today I now get
    The KB article has no public hotfixes. Please contact support if you need immediate assistance.
    wonder if this got pulled or just a temporary glitch?
