Microsoft SQL Server 2008 SP2 Cumulative Update 5 Released

By GlennBerry, 2011/07/18

Microsoft has released Cumulative Update 5 for SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 2. This CU has ten fixes listed in the knowledge base article, and it is Build 10.0.4316. This Cumulative Update is only for SQL Server 2008 SP2 (not for SQL Server 2008 R2).

Microsoft has also released Cumulative Update 15 for SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1, with only four fixes listed in the KB article. This is Build 10.0.2847. Of course, it should not be a big surprise that I think you should be on the SQL Server 2008 SP2 branch by now. At some point, Microsoft will “retire” the SQL Server 2008 SP1 branch, making it an “unsupported service pack”.

Here is an updated SQL Server 2008 Build Chart that makes it a little easier to understand:

-- SQL Server 2008 RTM is considered an "unsupported service pack" as of April 13, 2010
-- SQL Server 2008 RTM Builds   SQL Server 2008 SP1 Builds     SQL Server 2008 SP2 Builds
