Out-of-band hotfix releases for SQL Server 2008 SP4 and 2008 R2 SP3
Back in September, I blogged about the availability of SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 3 and SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 4. I made it clear that there would be no cumulative updates after those service packs, and while there still hasn't been any such release, Microsoft this week *kind of* made me look like a liar. They have released what they're calling an "on-demand hotfix update" in KB #3033860 (2008 R2 SP3) and KB #3034373 (2008 SP4).
While the updates will bring 10.50.6000 up to 10.50.6525 or 10.0.6000 up to 10.0.6526, there is not much to them; only two fixes are listed publicly:
- KB #3027860 : Error 17066 or 17310 during SQL Server startup
- KB #3027857 : FIX: Error 832 occurs after you apply update MS14-044 to SQL Server 2008 R2
