Hotfix request links to Cumulative Updates 9 and 10 for SP1 do not work

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 

Last week I was able to obtain CU9 for SQL Server 2008 SP1.  This week, I cannot even make a request for CU10 or CU9.  Since Saturday, I have received the following reply whenver I click on a hotfix link:  Hotfix Request
The system is currently unavailable. Please try back later, or contact support if you want immediate assistance.http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/?ws=support

If I attempt to contact support in any way, they want to charge me.  What is going on?

Unable to request Cumulative Update or any hotfix

  

I need to install the Feb 2010 CU for SharePoint 2007 (x86). This is KB978395. When following the link to request the hotfix, I am presented with the error message "The system is currently unavailable. Please try back later, or contact support..." I have tried accessing for several days. Have checked firewall settings, turned off anti-virus. Tried using Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, IE8, Firefox, Chrome - all with the same result. Although this particular update is what I need (to get a development VM to the same build number as a client's production system for troubleshooting a problem), ANY hotfix request returns the same error. I am in New Zealand, but have used this service fine in the past. The specific URL in question is http://support.microsoft.com/kb/978395 (but any hotfix request has the same problem). A search on the error message shows other people routinely have the same problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

Can the cumulative updates be installed during the 2010 upgrade before the configuration wizard is r

  
For an in-place upgrade of MOSS 2007 Enterprise to SharePoint 2010 Enterprise done by running the installation package, cancelling out of running the configuration wizard, installing all of the cumulative updates, and then run the configuration wizard one time? The "Understanding Updates for SharePoint" white paper states: It is possible to successfully install service packs, hotfixes, and language packs and their updates all at the same time, and only run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard one time. However, the environment will not be accessible between installing the first update and the final update and running the configuration wizard. It would be nice if this also applied to the 2010 upgrade to say on some machine time. Thanks!Eric

All SharePoint 2007 & 2010 Cumulative Updates Unavailable??

  

As far as I can tell, all SharePoint 2007 and 2010 Cumulative Updates are unavailable -- trying to download any of them goes to a page saying that the hotfix download page is unavailable.

Anyone know if they are working on this problem, or any idea when the site will be working again?

Do they have any ftp site they can fall back on, when their web service platform fails like this?

Need Dec2008 or Feb2009 SharePoint Cumulative updates for pre-SP2 testing.

  

Hi,

I am trying to download the cumulative update package for MOSS for either december 2008 or Febuary 2009, I can find the WSS package not problem, but the MOSS package is not found.

I get this - http://support.microsoft.com/hotfix/KBHotfix.aspx?kbnum=960011&kbln=en-us

I have looked and looked, but found no where to download these updates.  And I do NOT want to have to call MS just to pay $600 for MS to send them to me...

What gives?


Articles/Links on Asp.Net pipeline and internal request processing architecture

  

I am looking details on the internal working of asp.net architecture. The topics need to include the following:

  1. Asp.Net Thread/Application Pools
  2. HttpRuntime
  3. HttpApplication - When and how it is set up
  4. How HttpContext is set up
  5. How objects can passed along the pipeline using HttpContext.Current.Items
  6. Why does modification of static variables requires locks in ASP.NET (advanced)
  7. IIS 7 Integration Mode

I'm looking for a very detailed description of Asp.Net internals and how request processing happens under the hood.

Installing Cumulative Updates

  

Hi,

On a 2 Node SQL Cluster, I run the SQL installation on the Primary Node. I then run SQL setup on the secondary node using the 'add node to failover cluster' option within Setup. I then run SP1 on the Primary Node then run the Cumulative Update (not tested SP2 yet with our apps). 

My question is - do I need to run the Cumulative Update on both nodes or will running it on the Primary Node replicate over?


Installing SQL Server cumulative updates

  

I am running SQL 2005 32-bit on Windows Server 2008 64-bit. Do I require the X64 or the I386 cumulative updates? I'm not sure if the X64/I386 designation on the updates applies to the OS or the Application. I expect it will probably tell me if I try to install the wrong one but I thought I would ask first.

 


Request time out while using WebClient .Net frame work 2.0

  

In our application developed in .Net framework 2.0, we have a requirement to download multiple files from WebServer (IIS 6.0) simultaneously, the file count is not defined it can exceed 40 or 50 or more and the file size is less then 1 kb. We are using WebClient to download file one by one and “dispose” it as soon as the file is downloaded.

 

The issue here is sometime we get “Time out error” for some files and some files are downloaded successfully.

 

We have already tried setting ServicePointManager.DefaultConnectionLimit property but still the issue persists.

Applying cumulative updates

  

Hi

Does anyone have instructions for applying a cumulative update?  Does SQL have to be online or offline? If online, does it need to be online on the active node (if you are installing the update on the passive node)?

Thanks

SQL 2008 R2 Cumulative Updates Unavailable

  

When I go to the KB article 2345451 and click the link "View and request hotfix downloads" I just get the error: 

"The system is currently unavailable. Please try back later, or contact support if you want immediate assistance."

It has been this way for several days now.  When will this be fixed so that I can download Cumulative Update package 4 for SQL Server 2008 R2?
