Successful Installation SP3 not Applied on Server.

Applies to: SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition.


Problem Description.

After a successful installation of SQL Server 2005 SP3 the instance is still at SP2.

Reviewing the SQL installation logs we found the following in the summary log file (Summary.txt):

Product : Database Services
Product Version (Previous): 3054
Product Version (Final) : 4035
Status : Success
Log File : C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\LOG\Hotfix\SQL9_Hotfix_KB955706_sqlrun_sql.msp.log
Error Number : 0
Error Description :

After a reboot, when we run SELECT @@VERSION for that server we noticed that the engine didn't get upgraded.

Microsoft SQL Server 2005 - 9.00.3054.00 (Intel X86)


This problem occurred because we were installing a beta version of the SQL Server 2005 SP3 instead of the final version.

The beta version of the SQL Server 2005 SP3 has a size of approximately 288 MB for 32-bit systems.


Please download SQL Server 2005 SP3 from here and install it. This final version of SQL Server 2005 SP3 has a size of approximately 326 MB for 32-bit systems.
