Hi,

In our environment ,we are planning on applying service packs to all the sql instances which were old and we have 2005/2008/2008R2.
I have searched online but i dont find any particular document for service packs or patches.
Can anyone please send me a document or link that shows step by step process for applying the SP's ?
I'm looking for the pre-reqs, installation process and post installation with all the details...
Also , my main concern is i'm preparing a document with list of sql servers in my environment ( i believe there are around 100 servers ), version,current service pack, latest service pack to apply ...
Please help me on finding a script to get all these details at once...like any powershell or cmd script ?

Thanks in advance...

You'd have to check the readme for each service pack/patch. There's not guarantee for these to be similar to each other.

for the most part, each has a setup program, which can usually be scripted. Not sure about 2005, but the 2008+ should allow command line execution.

We have a list of builds here, and you can link to the KBs for each item.

Note that you only need to install the latest SP, not each of them. So SP3 can be installed without SP1 and Sp2. Or you can install SP3 over SP1 and skip SP2.

If you're looking for something more detailed or organized than this, I doubt you'll find one. The installation is a patch, an install program. The docs will say backup your databases, but not much more.

I'm not sure what more you're looking for
