Hello,

I see on this page

http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/?c2=1044

the dates for support for  SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition and SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2. But it does not say SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 Standard Edition. I have I SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 Standard Edition. So, I am wondering what product I should be looking at on this page if I have SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 Standard Edition? Try to find when the extended support ends.

Thanks.

Actually, it already ended as of Jan 12, 2010.  See

http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/?p1=2855

for a detailed list.  Currently, only SP4 for 2005 is under support.

SP2 is for service pack 2 of any version of SQL Server.  Use the expiration date of the service pack as the expiration date of support for the base product that has been updated to that Service Pack.
