  • Microsoft yanks buggy cumulative update for SQL Server 2016 SP2, KB 4293807

    Posted on August 20th, 2018 at 14:22 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    The SQL Server engineering team just posted this on the MSDN SQL Server blog:

    On Tuesday August 14, we published a Security Update for six different releases of SQL Server 2016 and 2017. For one of those releases, SQL Server 16 SP2 CU (KB4293807), we inadvertently published additional undocumented trace flags that are normally not on by default. We are working on replacing the update in the next few days. If you installed KB4293807 and are experiencing issues please uninstall the update until the replacement update (KB4458621) is available.

    Günter Born reports one of his correspondents couldn’t get the cumulative update to install, failing with an error 0x80070643. Trying again this morning, the patch wasn’t available.
