It seems the resource database hasn't been updated in this release?
I've got this query (below) that I use after patching my instances, and it reports 11.00.3000 in the first column and 11.0.3321.0 in the third column.
Is this the expected result?
SERVERPROPERTY('ResourceVersion') as ResourceDB,
SERVERPROPERTY('ResourceLastUpdateDateTime') as ResourceDBLastUpdated,
SERVERPROPERTY('ProductVersion') as Version,
SERVERPROPERTY('ProductLevel') as SP;
CU5 was released 27 days after SP1 CU1.
When can we expect the fixes in CU5 to be rolled into the SP1 branch, please?
CU5 has some HIGH IMPACT bug fixes that anyone taking advantage of the new SP1 functionality is DISADVANTAGED by having chosen that route.
Please advise BEFORE I COMMIT TO THE SP1 BRANCH.
