SQL2005 SP3 Released
The triumph of people-power – here’s SQL2005 SP3:
If you’re running Analysis Services 2005 SP2 I would strongly recommend (after testing and all the obvious due diligence) you upgrade. I have a very low opinion of SP2 due to the number of bugs and performance regressions it contains; SP3 should be a big improvement. Although as I’ve said here in the past I think migrating from AS2005 to AS2008 is an even better idea simply because of the massive improvements that have been made in the performance of calculations.
