[EN] SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2 Cumulative Update 1 is available

LOGO__SQLServer2008R2Sp2One week ago, and two weeks after releasing Service Pack No 2 for SQL Server 2008 R2, Microsoft published first Cumulative Update for this environment. Let’s look for a moment for this update.

In this Cumulative Update 1 [version build: 10.50.4260.0] Microsoft resolved a lot of requested issues for:

SQL Server Analysis Services
