In November I was quite disappointed. The DBCC CHECKFILEGROUP bugI had come across in September had made it into the Cumulative Update 8 for SQL Server 2008, but not in the Cumulative Update 5 for SQL 2008 SP1 branch. Being that I prefer to keep up on the service packs I was out of luck. Apparently it had not passed quality control for the SP1 branch.
However, I was told at the time that it would be a forth coming commulative update in January. Not wanting to wait another two months I put forth my business need for it and now a Hotfix is available for it!
If you’ve been stuck without being able to do DBCC CHECKFILEGROUP’s I hope you go grab this and get back to having that warm feeling inside knowing your data files are in good shape.
