Service Pack and Build to SQL SERVER 2005

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Dear Sirs,
I installed the SQL SERVER 2005 and found that the latest service pack for it's SP3.
But the site http://support.microsoft.com/kb/960598/en-us, I noticed that there are several "builds" (cumulative update) to apply too.
My question is: after applying SP3 to SQL 2005, I need to install all the cumulative update's from 1 to 11, or the latter accumulates all previous fixes?
What must be done in this case?
Now, thank you the attention and collaboration.

SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3 (KB955706) update is successful but repeats installin

  Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3 (KB955706) (update 1 of 1) This update seems to be stuck in a loop of installing, each time it successfull installs acccording to automatic updates. Then says it requires installing again straight away. This has been happening for 10 days now. I have tried a manual update from the website rather than automatic updates, no change. Any ideas why? Have posted in Windows update which is where I think the problem lies but they have suggested I post here also.

Which SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack to Install?

I have Windows 2008 Small Business Server Standard Edition.  When I scan for updates I get two different SQL service packs showing up, with the same KB955706 number.  I'm wondering which I should install, or if both, what order to install them in?  The first one is labeled: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3 The second one is labeled: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services Service Pack 3 For applications, I have Blackbaud The Financial Edge v7.78 (accounting package for clubs) installed that uses SQL Server 2005 Express Edition for its database engine.  The new upgrade for this software requires SP3 which is why I need to know which service pack to install.  Also, please let me know if there are any tricks to getting the service packs installed on 2008 SBS Standard Edition.  I know sometimes registry settings need to be changed for SQL service packs to be installed properly. Thank you for your help.  

Uable to successfully install SQL Server 2005 (Express Edition) Service Pack 3 (KB955706)

After repeated attempts, I am unable to install the MSSQL Server 2005 (Express Edition) Service Pack 3 (KB955706).  From Live Update, the installation initializes but then reports that it was unable to install.  The first couple of times I received Error Code 0x65B, but that doesn't come up any longer. I have ACT! Database version 2007 (9.0) and it is unable to access the database to open it because it uses the MSSQL??  Also, there used to be an MSSQL icon below in my system tray, but that no longer appears.  When I reboot it will be on briefly, but then goes away.. MS Customer Support has attempted to help (Case ID SRX1135612820) but now tell me that this is beyond their expertise.  They had me try to reload MMSQL 2005 but no change. Please help! Thanks!!  Terry

The Express updates; Express, Express Advanced, and Express Toolkit will be automatically download and installed, if you have accepted to receive updates through Microsoft Update and you have enable automatic updates on you Windows machines. You can also see the update directly on the Microsoft Update web site.

 All of these updates will be available through WSUS so an IT admin can control deployment of these updates through their enterprise.

 Customers can optionally obtain SQL Server SP1 through Microsoft Update if they hide the SP2 update.

Security Update for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 (KB970892) could not be installed

Can't install Service Pack 3 for SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services


I just installed a stand-alone SQL Server 2005 reporting services on a 64-bit Server 2008 machine without receiving any errors.  I have not configured reporting services yet, but I'd like to patch it with Service pack 3. However, when I execute Service Pack 3, it won't let me check the box for reporting services.  I've rebooted, etc.  The database is not installed on this server, just reporting services.

I have performed many searches, but I have not seen anyone with a similar problem.  What can I do so that it allows me to check the box during service pack installation?


SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 Setup

I am attempting to upgrade a SQL Server 2005 install on a Windows XP SP2 machine and every time I run the SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 Setup, I get to the page for Authentication and click next.  Then a dialog pops up that says Authentication Verification: Please wait while your authentication is verified.  It hangs here for a few minutes and then eventually shuts down the machine.  Has anyone experienced this before?  I can run the SP2 ugrade on the machine just fine and it goes through the authentication step without issue.  I tried uninstalling sql server and reinstalling it to make sure it wasn't something with the sql server install.  I also tried to clean up space on the machine to ensure it wasn't a memory issue.  Then i thought it was something with permissions so I had another person with admin rights try it on the machine and the same thing happened for them.  What could the upgrade possibly be trying to check during authentication that would cause it to freeze up and hang? 

I checked the HotFix.log that gets generated and the bottom lines are
Registry: Opened registry key "System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager"
Registry: Cannot read registry key value "PendingFileRenameOperations", error 5

Updating the SQL Server 2005 Service Pack



I have SQL Server 2005 std Edition with service pack 2. I want to upgrade it to service pack 3.

Do we need to plan a downtime for this activity? Or can it be carried out whilst users are accessing and are connected to the database?

Please advice.
