SQL Server SP2 Re-Released!

As noted in an earlier post, SQL Server 2005 SP2 shipped with some problems around the maintenance jobs and how the schedule works. (For more information, see the following KB article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/933508)

If you have already installed the SQL 2005 SP2

Install the General Distribution Release (GDR) on top of that build to fix the problem. No un-installation of the old SP2 needed.
