SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 Cumulative Update 4

On December 19, 2011, Microsoft released SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 Cumulative Update 4 (CU4), which is Build 10.50.2796. I count 52 fixes in the fix list for this Cumulative Update, which is an unusually high number for a CU. Keep in mind that this CU is only for SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1. If you are still on the RTM branch, you will have to install SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 before you install this CU. It also will not work on any build of SQL Server 2008 (which is an earlier “major” version of SQL Server).

Here are lists of the SQL Server 2008 R2 builds that were released after SQL Server 2008 R2 was released, and the SQL Server 2008 R2 builds that were released after SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 was released.   My little SQL Server 2008 R2 Build List below might also be helpful.

    FYI.
    I noticed on my dev instance ( that was in a stopped stated during the apply of SP1CU4) that it only runs the upgrade scripts, not at install time, but the first time you start the sqlinstance, so that startup will take more time before anyone can connect.

    Yes, it will be in script upgrade mode for a little bit the first time that the SQL Server instance starts after the upgrade.
