End of Service Pack Support for SQL Server 2005 SP2 and SQL Server 2008 RTM January 8th, 2010

Vinod Kumar

I would like to remind all users that Service Pack Support for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 (SP2) will end on January 12, 2010 and support for SQL Server 2008 RTM will end on April 13, 2010.  Microsoft is ending support for these products as part of their Service Pack support policy, found in http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle

Both SQL Server 2005 SP2 and SQL Server 2008 RTM will no longer receive assisted support or security updates from Microsoft after their respective end of support dates.  Self-Help online support will continue to be available for a minimum of 12 months after the product reaches the end of support.  Self-Help options include public knowledge base articles, FAQs, troubleshooting tools which are typically available from http://support.microsoft.com and the Microsoft Download Center.
