Hi,

I am running SBS 2008 and have been told by some developers I need to install SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2, can someone let me know if this is supported and where I can download the link?

Regards

However SQL Server 2005 is no longer under mainstream support, and support for service pack 2 has ended. My recommendation would be to go to Service Pack 4 if your application supports it.

Quick question Matt,

When I run the SP2 upgrade it lets me select the files but does not let me select SBSMonitoring
|
|_Database Services

Or Client Components.

Any ideas? Is this normal?

Yes, the service packs are pretty automated. If the components are not upgraded then you wont be able to select them.

Matt,

I have received the following notice:

'By default, users on Windows Vista and later operating systems are not members of the System Administrators role for SQL Server or Analysis Services. To add users to the System Administrator role, user the check box below to launch the SQL Server 2005 user Provisioning Tool for Windows Vista after SP2 installation completes.

Do I need to do this step?
