Steve Jones - SSC Editor (10/8/2010)
Please don't post questions about SQL Server 2008 R2 in this thread. That is a separate product and has completely separate patches.

There is a build list here for SQL Server 2008 R2: http://www.sqlservercentral.com/articles/SQL+Server+2008+R2/70092/

When you click "Join the discussion" on that SQL Server 2008 R2 build list you referred to, it takes you to this thread!

So why not post questions aobut SQL 2008 R2 in this thread? There is no other thread!

Regarding the answer above, the Join discussion on mentioned page is going to this discussion thread.

Steve, Now you are the Sql person of the year (read it somewhere yesterday), congratulations btw!

I have a question. regarding the CU updates. I'm good with sql but certainly not a DBA'er or expert (Software developer working with sql and doing the dba task on our production boxes).

Ms recommendations:

This cumulative update package may receive additional testing. Therefore, if you are not severely affected by any of these problems, we recommend that you wait for the next SQL Server 2008 R2 service pack that contains the hotfixes in this cumulative update package.


I'm not aware that we have problems on our instances, but we do use some of the mentioned features which are on the fix list. I hate to find a bug and find out they patched it 5 months ago in a CU.

What would be your advice? Patch a R2 with CU5? Did you in the last year have any problems which appeared after installing a CU? My gut feeling is that MS patching on SQL is quit ok and there has not been any big problems. But I dont maintain that many databases to have no sufficient build up knowledge on it.

Thanks in advance!

What I have heard regarding CUs is that they are tested and the support people at MS have confidence in them. However, they do not get the wide range of testing an SP gets from having many customers install CTPs.

So..

If you have a bug that is addressed in a CU, you should apply it to a test system, and test the heck out of it. Run through as many processes/code paths as you can think of for your system. If it seems OK, apply it on production.

However that's a big process and a lot of work, so if you can wait for an SP, I'd wait. I would not expect another SS2K8 SP until next fall at the earliest.

Don't know if I am off topic here, but am struggling with a side-by-side upgrade of SQL Server 2008 to Sql 2008 R2 on a machine runnig Windows Server 2008 R2....

The SQL 2008 R2 installs but the Instance is MSSQLSERVER.Inactive (see image below)

I am happy to completely upgrade to MSSQL 2008 R2 and eliminate SQL 2008...

Also, the install is no longer accepting my serial no - have put it in so many times (on the same machine, of course)



Thanks

Martin

That typically means you specified the instance name as "inactive" when you installed it. It's a name, but shouldn't affect the SQL Server.

It is off topic for here. If you have issues getting this to run (I didn't see a question), please start a thread in the SS2K8 forums.

Haven't heard from anyone about Sp1 for R2 as of yet. I'd expect it soon
