Yipee, time for testing again! November 3, 2008

Posted by msrviking in SQL Server (SP's).

SQL Server 2005 SP3 CTP version is out. You will want to download  a copy for yourself here.

However, let me caution you guys don’t try this on your production boxes. Ideally, you will want to download, run it against a sandbox environment, test the stuff you are looking for, (and test, and test), get all the stakeholders in your shop understand on the changes that would be available in the RTM and then plan for deployment in production (of course again after testing)!. Somehow, I love this word “testing”.

To quickly quench your curiousity here are the areas which is addressed in this service pack – Database Engine, Notification Services, Replication and Reporting services. Try it for yourself, and let me also know what did you find.

Happy reading and testing.
