Microsoft Consolidates SQL Server Tools

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From eWeek]

Microsoft Corp. has consolidated the database security tools that shield SQL Server 2000 and MSDE 2000 installations from the Slammer worm. SQL Server 2000 SQL Scan, SQL Check and SQL Critical Update are now available in a single download, the SQL Critical Update Kit, which can be downloaded from the Microsoft Web site.

The kit includes two other utilities: the SMS (Systems Management Server) deployment tool, which can be used to create a package in SMS to deploy SQL Server Critical Update, and the Servpriv.exe utility. The latter is required to set appropriate user rights on corresponding service registry keys when running SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 2.
