At my local PASS chapter meeting last Wednesday, I discovered I was behind on the latest news. SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 was released! Having just done a cluster deployment and three internal upgrades, I had to get a plan in order for deployment.
Beforehand, I thankfully discovered the latest from Microsoft Release Services. Apparently the RTM of SP1 is essentially Cumulative Updates 1 through 6. Really? I'm ahead of the curve? In my zeal for fresh deployments (and for a customer's requirements), I had slipstreamed Cumulative Update 8 on all of my recent deployments. Those changsets don't get included until Service Pack 1 Cumulative Update 1. That certainly saves me some time!
Now if I could only find time to finish deploying SSRS internally.
