Update SQL Server 2005 client components with Cumulative Update 9
Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007 requires SQL Server 2005 Cumulative Update 9 (CU9) to communicate with Microsoft SQL Server 2008. This update affects only the SQL Server 2005 client components and redistributable files. This article covers the process to download and install SQL Server CU9 for all computers where PerformancePoint Server is installed.
Alternately, you can install SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 (SP3) instead of the SQL Server 2005 CU9 update. SQL Server 2005 SP3 contains the hotfixes that were included in cumulative update packages for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 from cumulative update package 1 to cumulative update package 9. SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 is available on Microsoft TechNet at What’s New in SQL Server 2005 SP3. However, if you already have SQL Server 2005 CU9 you do not need to install SQL Server 2005 SP3.
If you upgrade from SQL Server 2005 CU10 or CU11, then you must apply a post-SP3 cumulative update after upgrading to SP3 to get all of the fixes. The post-SP3 update is available on the Microsoft Help and Support site Cumulative update package 1 for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3.
