apply sp4 to mssql 2005 sp1 cluster

apply sp4 to mssql 2005 sp1 cluster

HI All,

I would like to install sql server 2005 sp4 onto a clustered environment running sql server 2005 sp2. I had heard that some issues were encountered going from sp1 to sp4 on a clustered environment but i cannot find any notes related to the so called issues on the net so i thought i would pose the question here.

Setup is:

OS Name: Microsoft(R) Windows(R) Server 2003, Enterprise Edition
OS Version: 5.2.3790 Service Pack 2 Build 3790
Software version: SQL Server 2005 Enterprise edition sp2
Cluster setup: 1 active, 1 passive.

Any updates would be greatly welcomed.

RE: apply sp4 to mssql 2005 sp1 cluster

I am running SQL 2005 SP4 on a cluster with no apparent issues. The install will require some downtime, when the master and msdb databases are upgraded. The total downtime should not be very long (probably 10 minutes or so), so make sure you let the users know.
