MS08-040 Security Patch on a Microsoft Windows 2003 Cluster Running MS SQL 2000 SP4

I am trying to find out about this patch. I need to know if the hotfixes for this are cluster aware
The vulnerability numbers are 948110, 948111

Where can I find offical documentation about installation and cluster awareness? I also need to read about deployment methods etc.

Thanks for your help

The patch needs to be installed on each node of the cluster.
I would say the patch is not cluster aware but patches cluster OS's and applications.
So passive node first, move groups, patch new passive, not necessarily the same day, may want to review / test the patch first.

This is any SQL patch though... I have read on EE that SQL patches are applied to the Virtual cluster name, and both nodes are patched.

This (http:/Q_23823918.html) was a discussion for patching SQL 2005 I was recently in.  As I understand it, the same things sort of apply to SQL 2000.

There are cluster aware portions of SQL and non-cluster aware portions.

It might give you some of the guidance in trying to figure out what is done depending on the patch.

I placed a call to microsoft support. The patch is cluster aware. You patch the active node and both servers are then patched.

The patch requires a reboot if any of the files are locked during the time of install. The SQL server supposedly continues running fine unitl next reboot however.
