SharePoint 2010 & SQL 2008 R2 build numbers and helpful patching links

SharePoint 2010 & SQL 2008 R2 build numbers and helpful patching links

In an effort to make life simpler I have compiled a short list of useful link to build numbers and patching sites for SharePoint 2010 and SQL 2008 R2.

The Microsoft SharePoint Updates PagesSharePoint 2010 – http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/ff800847.aspx
SharePoint 2007- http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/office/sharepointserver/bb735839.aspx
This is your official sites for downloading the SharePoint updates from Microsoft.  Highly useful rather than waiting on the blogger community to send you a link, or get the TechNet bulletin, your carrier pigeon to arrive, or any of the other 120+ ways to get your SharePoint update information!

Cornelius J. van Dyk’s Blog on Versions for SharePoint

Highly useful link if you find yourself a CU or two behind and you want to know what version of the CU is currently applied to your farm.  Simply visit your Central Admin Manage Patch Status page http://localhost:####/_admin/PatchStatus.aspx to check what version number your farm is on.

SQL 2008 R2 build numbers
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/981356/
This has proven to be the most reliable site I have found for listing the latest build numbers for SQL Server since 2008 R2 dropped.  To find out what what build you are running do the following:

  1. Open SQL Management Studio
  2. New Query
  3. type and then execute the following command
    select @@version
