    I have an SQL 2000 SP4 engine, and I am looking to get it up to compliance for an audit item which requires me to have all hotfixes post SP4 installed on the engine.

    Can anyone tell me how to go about doing this? I see the cummulative hotfix build 2187, however I see there are two other hotfixes attached to that build number as well. So I'm confused. Can I install this cummulative hotfix and it will contain all the other hotfixes post SP4 up to 2187? Then, do I have to download and apply all other hotfixes individually?

    Is there an easy upgrade tool for sql 200?

    Does cumulative hotfix build 2187 also includes Microsoft security update such "MS09-004: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft SQL Server could allow remote code execution" or do i have to install it separately?

    Patch 2000.80.2187.0 includes the the security update, but if you want to be fully up to date, there are a few more available patches/updates for SQL 2000

    Please take a look at this site, all available updates have a link to download and install

    Elroy: Nope.

    patch 2282 and 2055 both complies with MS09-04

    does it mean patch 2273 is already included in 2055 too? or i have to install 2273 separately?

    or is it a rule that latest patch means that it already covers previous FIXes, cumulative hotfix and Security Bulletine? -- im only concern with the security patch than those FIXes by the way.
