Technical Information

When did Microsoft release Service Pack 1 for Windows Server 2008? Why is there a second service pack for Server 2008 which had no SP1?

Windows Server 2008 released with the Service Pack 1 code included, and was marketed as Windows Server 2008 with SP1 already included.  SP2 is the first post-release Service Pack for Windows Server 2008. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd335038(WS.10).aspx

 

Additional Info:

Microsoft Cumulative updates (CU) are a collection of previous hotfixes, security updates, critical updates, and other updates.  Unlike Service Packs (CU) packages generally do not include or add any new features into the existing product.  Because of this, we do not perform testing against (CU) packages or maintain a listing of the current (CU) package within this matrix.
