An unpatched 2000 SP4 is not a good place to be, especially if you are using AWE. There were some significant fixes posted to that subsystem, to the optimzer, etc after the SP4 release.

it's a rollup update following SP4 meaning that you need SP4 installed before installing it.

Hi Steve,

I see that you have beaten me to the punch. That's the down side of having something else as your day job

Anyway, I still have decided to blog about this (see http://sqlblog.com/blogs/hugo_kornelis/archive/2008/02/01/want-a-service-pack-ask-for-it.aspx, and I have also filed a suggestion to release service pack 3 on connect (see -and vote!- https://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/ViewFeedback.aspx?FeedbackID=326575).

Let's hope that the huge amount of support here will be extended by a huge amount of votes on connect. Maybe that can convince Microsoft that they should release a service pack!

Yes. Most definitely I want a SP3. It is very confusing to keep track of all the roll-ups and patches. I thought the MS advice on the subject was unless you specifically need the patch to correct some known issue (unless it's security related) wait on the SP. So have they changed this advice? Install all patches? I have a couple issues going on right now that I have been waiting on a SP to correct and just using a work around for now. Some of the warnings on the patches make you nervous about installing them if you have a relatively acceptable work-around.

Also, note that when using purchased software, often vendors will test to a SP level. Without SP to set a line in sand, I can see the conversations back and forth to vendors when problem arise, " I've got patch a,b, f, and k, what patches have you tested with. It's just not a good scenario. So you install only CRITICAL patches, wait on SP and install a SP when a vendor says they have tested.

The latest post-SQL-2000-SP4 rollup, version 8.0.2187, has a lot of the fixes required, including a fix for the AWE bug.

Microsoft has extended support for SQL 2000 SP4 to 2013, although that is not extended support, ie. no new hotfixes will be produced.

Where I work, we have been upgrading all our SQL 2000 instances to version 8.0.2187, as was suggested to us by MS Support.

There is one issue we have encountered with this version. It is regarding queries involving the numeric data type, and we have had to enable flag 9059 as a startup parameter to revert back to pre-sp4 behavior. Pls see this link for more info on this:

FIX: A query that involves data that is the numeric data type may return incorrect results in SQL Server 2000 SP3 and in earlier SQL Server 2000 service packs:

An update from MS......

Hello SQL Server community! Just wanted to let you know that your ask did not go unheard with the SQL Server development team. We do look at the highest voted suggestions on an ongoing basis. With SQL2008 coming to a close (don't miss the launch messages week after next together with WS08 and VS08!) we are actively planning our post 2008 projects. We will be able to get back to you in a few weeks with a formal statement regarding SP3.

Thanks, Matthias Berndt
SQL Server Release Services
