Just over a month since SQL Server 2008 went to RTM and the first Cumulative Update (CU1) has been released. Bob Ward, a very good friend of mine, and a Principal Escalation Engineer in the SQL Server Product Support team published a detailed blog post on Friday explaining how to get it and install it.

If you’re not subscribed to the PSS blog, you should be. They post a ton of great info on how things work and how to work around bugs. Bob just blogged again today about how SQL Server 2008 Setup itself can be patched – not a trivial problem to engineer around.
