Cumulative Update 9 for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 - another update package in line

In continuation to the CumulativeUpdate package posts here for SQL Server 2005 SP2 we have another set of cumulative update package no.9 ready for testing. TO obtain this read the notes from Microsoft:

.... Apply it only to systems that are experiencing these specific problems. This cumulative update package may receive additional testing. Therefore, if you are not severely affected by any of these problems, we recommend that you wait for the next SQL Server 2005 service pack that contains the hotfixes in this cumulative update package.

If additional issues occur or any troubleshooting is required, you might have to create a separate service request. The usual support costs will apply to additional support questions and issues that do not qualify for this specific cumulative update package. For a complete list of Microsoft Customer Service and Support telephone numbers or to create a separate service request, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

The hotfixes are created for specific SQL Server service packs and before that you must apply SP2 hotfix to an installation of SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2. Without testing you will risk the environment availability and bBy default, any hotfix that is provided in a SQL Server service pack is included in the next SQL Server service pack.

For more information this Cumulative Update package 9 refer to this KB953752 article.
