Earlier this month Microsoft launched SQL Server 2008 R2. And then last week Microsoft release Cumulative Update 1 for SQL Server 2008 R2. You might might be getting serious like this baby thinking, “Really, already?!”
The reality though is that this deserves a “YES!”
Why would a quick Cumulative Update after release be such a good thing? That’s because the most recent Cumulative Updates rolls up all of the changes that were part of Cumulative Updates 4, 5, 6, and 7 for SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1.
Rather than making us wait to find the issues related to these Cumulative Updates again, this has all been updated for us.
