Morning everyone.

I installed 2005 (X64) SP3 & 4 on a server over the weekend. An odd thing came up when I checked @@Version. Just for information purposes, the original SQL install already had Sp2, I just continued with 3 & 4.

Looking at another server which has all the service packs on it the @@Version reads..
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 - 9.00.5000.00 (X64)   Dec 10 2010 10:38:40   Copyright (c) 1988-2005 Microsoft Corporation Standard Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.1 (Build 7600: ) 



9.00.5000.00 = Correct version
7600 = Correct build

The server which is giving me a conflicting @@Version reading..
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 - 9.00.5000.00 (X64)   Dec 10 2010 10:38:40   Copyright (c) 1988-2005 Microsoft Corporation Standard Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 5.2 (Build 3790: Service Pack 2)



9.00.5000.00 = Correct version
Build 3790: Service Pack 2 = ??Crazy

The machine appears to be working without any problem, I haven’t had any complaints..

I’ve been working with SQL for a very long time and have never seen anything like this.. My Google searching yielded nothing..

Do I perhaps uninstall SP 3 & 4 and start at 1 again??

Thanx for reading..

Those components of @@VERSION speak to the OS, not SQL Server. Here is what I use to check what you're trying to check which ensures I only see the SQL Server properties and that they are not mixed with OS properties:

SELECT SERVERPROPERTY('Edition'), 
SERVERPROPERTY('ProductVersion'),
SERVERPROPERTY('ProductLevel');
