Update Rollup 2 Build number:5.0.9688.1155
Note: An issue with the CRM Server Update Rollup package was found on Friday, 6/3, and it was removed from the Microsoft Download Center. It was on the Download Center for about 30 hours. The Server package was re-released on Monday, 6/6. The new server packages contain a "v2" in the name so they can easily be distinguished from the original Update Rollup 2 server packages. Example: CRM2011-Server-KB2466086-ENU-amd64-v2.exe. The server package build version is 1157. All other components' package build versions remain at build 1155.
If you installed the older (v1) version of the Server package, you don't need to uninstall it, you can install the new one "over the top"

Soon after this morning's podcast, I was notified that CRM 2011 Update Rollup 2 has been removed from the Microsoft Download Center, and will be re-released early next week - hopefully Monday. The issue resulting in this re-release involves the CRM 2011 Client for Microsoft Outlook. A generic script error ("Microsoft Dynamics CRM has encountered an error") may occur in Outlook when navigating away from a folder that is not a MAPI grid; for example, in dashboards or reports, etc. So if you attempt to access some of the Update Rollup 2 package download URLs and they fail, this is why.
Happy to say the Server package has been re-released at ~12:00 PM Pacific Daylight time. The new server packages contain a v2 in the name so they can easily be distinguished from the original UR2 server packages. Example: CRM2011-Server-KB2466086-ENU-amd64-v2.exe. The server version is 1157. All other components remain 1155, i.e. the only package re-released was the CRM Server package.
