SQL Server 2005 Sp2 Released

Ok I am being brave again and forward posting this, SP2 is done and should be available for download here 9:00am Monday.

    This comment should perhaps be placed on another blog – but there is no direct comment option at the download page.

    It is disappointing to see that while the download page (the one that this article links to) lists a link called "Download SQL Server 2005 Express Edition SP2", the that this link points to is actually a link to the SP1 version – and SP2 isn’t mentioned anywhere on the Express website.

    The SQL Server Express WebLog has no entry regarding SP2 of Express, so I guess that the Express version just isn’t ready yet. Whatever the reason, I’m dissapointed that a giant company like Microsoft appearantly is unable to check their links before they post a new page.

    Another slightly less disappointing issue is that the service pack, judging by the file size of the download, is only available as a full download of the new SQL Server program.

    What happened to incremental SP updates?

    I see you found the feedback link on the SQL Express blog, did Mike Wachals response satisfy you?

  3. We just installed SP 2 and the database now hangs up on a consistant bases.  Since there is no way to remove the Service pack we are now looking forward to removing SqL Server and reinstalling it.  Any suggestions?
