Hi Abhishek, do we have any news on when the SQL 2008 R2 SP1 will be released?
Will it contain this updates?
I can tell that you have the MS11-049 fix by looking at the objects build list but the fix list doesn't include it. I am sure that the fix list will be updated shortly.
Will applying this fix the problem that arose with the automatic Windows Update of KB2494088? Should I uninstall the borked update first then try the cumulative update #8?
I have a question about the difference between Cumulative Update 8 and SP1 CTP. Are all updates in SP1 CTP in Cume 8? Will all of Cume 8 be in the final version of SP1?
If we apply Cume 8, would you recommend we also apply SP1 CTP? Should SP1 CTP be installed 1st or Cume 8 or only Cume 8, etc.?
Any advice or info would be appreciated by my clients.
