SQL Server 2005 Build Numbers

Since Microsoft released SP2 for SQL Server 2005, there have been several publicly available updates and hotfixes, so it can become confusing about what build you are on (and what it includes). Here is a partial list of common SQL Server 2005 Builds:

Description                                                                                Build Number

SQL Server 2005 RTM                                                                  1399

SQL Server 2005 SP1                                                                   2047

SQL Server 2005 SP2 (Before March 5)                                        3042

SQL Server 2005 SP2 with Maintenance Plan fix                         3050

SQL Server 2005 SP2 with Cumulative Hotfix (KB933097)            3152
