SQL SP2 KB Update failing on SQL SP3 server


We have a SQL server that was upgraded to SP3 at some point (not sure that that update was smooth...but I wasn't involved with that). WSUS is now saying that KB3045313, which is a Security Update for SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 2, is needed on my SQL server running SP3.
I don't know what to do to either get this update installed or get WSUS to realize that the update isn't needed. I am hoping that I don't have to back out SP3 to then apply the SP2 update? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Thanks Amy

How many instances do you have on your machine? Maybe there are more than one running on it..
SBSIAdminAuthor Commented:
This particular SQL server only has one instance installed.

No need to. This securiy update (July 2015) is more recent than SP3 (September 2014) so should be installed after SP3. You can proceed with no worries.

After you installing it the SELECT @@VERSION command should return 10.50.6220
10.50.6000 is the version number for SP3.

Knowing the update is needed for a SP3 install is good. I am still in a situation, it won't install.
As that SQL server stands now, when I run the above command, I get SQl 2008 (R2) - 10.50.4033.0 (X64)...this makes me believe SP3 didn't install correctly.
When I view Programs and features, the version for SQL shows 10.53.6000.34 (for the setup program item).
Vitor MontalvãoMSSQL Senior EngineerCommented:
Are you running the command in the correct SQL Server instance?
SBSIAdminAuthor Commented:
There is only one SQL instance on this server.
Vitor MontalvãoMSSQL Senior EngineerCommented:
Check in the SQL Configuration Manager. Also double check if you're not connected to a remote instance instead of the local one.
Can you post here a screenshot of the Program and Features, showing the SQL Server version?
SBSIAdminAuthor Commented:
I know I am logging onto a local instance and the only instance on the server.

Not sure what you are looking for in SQL Configuration Manager...other to verify there is only one instance, I will post pics in attachment.
Vitor MontalvãoMSSQL Senior EngineerCommented:
Just want to confirm. 4 eyes see better than 2 ;)
Anyway, you shouldn't check the version in Setup but 64-bit, that's what is installed. So you'll need to install the SP3 before proceed with the security patch.

Seems what ever was done, SP3 for SQL Server 2008 R2 was not installed. So WSUS is right with that patch for SP2.

It's a upgrade patch to 10.50.4042.

Is there a recommendation from anyone that I should try installing SP3 again?
Vitor MontalvãoMSSQL Senior EngineerCommented:
You have all evidences that says SP3 isn't installed. Don't know what you need more.

When there are no objections to do it.. Ask the guys who work with the server. Under normal circumstances I would do it.
SBSIAdminAuthor Commented:
I am the "guys" that work the server...but not an expert on SQL :)
I will give installing/reinstalling SP3 a shot...
ste5anSenior DeveloperCommented:
With "these guys" I mean those who wrote the applications and code for it.
SBSIAdminAuthor Commented:
Installed SP3, Installed Updates and all seems good. Thanks for the advice.
