SUMMARY

Microsoft distributes bug fixes in service packs. Service packs keep a product current. Service packs include updates and may include system administration tools, drivers, and additional components, which are conveniently bundled for easy downloading. Service packs are cumulative. Each new service pack contains all the fixes that are in previous service packs, as well as any new fixes. You do not need to install a previous service pack before you install the latest one. For example, you do not need to install SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 1 (SP1) before you install SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 2 (SP2).

SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3a

Release date: May 19, 2003

Note Because most changes introduced in SP3a are related to Setup, you do not need to apply SP3a to instances of SQL Server 2000 or MSDE 2000 that have already been upgraded to SP3.

If you have instances that have not yet been upgraded to SP3, however, you should always upgrade those instances directly to SP3a instead of SP3. If you have any copies of the SP3 download files that you were planning to use for future upgrades, you should delete those copies and instead use either the SP3a download files or the SP3a CD-ROM.

Applications that distribute and install MSDE 2000 should install SP3a instead of SP3. While you can apply SP3a to instances of SQL Server 2000 SP3 or MSDE 2000 SP3, doing so has little effect on those instances.

How to obtain
