SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 is now available for download at the following location:
As always, read the release notes before you install anything, and make sure you install it on your test environment first.
The big changes in this Service Pack include:
· Slipstream – You are now able to integrate the base installation with service packs (or Hotfixes) and install in a single step.
· Service Pack Uninstall – You are now able to uninstall only the Service Pack (without removing the whole instance)
· Report Builder 2.0 Click Once capability
Many organizations have a policy of "not installing until SP1" – well, here’s your chance.
