XP SP2 and SQL Server
August 27, 2004[From Windows & .NET Magazine Network/ SQL Server Magazine]
In June, I wrote about the effects that Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) has on SQL Server (see "Windows XP SP2 Defaults Break SQL Server Connections" at http://www.winnetmag.com/article/articleID/42854/42854.html ). Now that XP SP2 is dribbling out through Windows Update and other sources, I want to revisit the topic.
