Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2005 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2005 fix release.

SUMMARY

This article describes the following about this hotfix release:
  • The issues that are fixed by this hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for installing the hotfix package
  • Information about whether you must restart the computer after you install the hotfix package
  • Information about whether the hotfix package is replaced by any other hotfix package
  • Information about whether you must make any registry changes
  • The files that are contained in the hotfix package

SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • The SQL Server 2005 query optimizer evaluates a query that has a predicate.
  • The query predicate contains one alternative that is an index union.
For example, the following query is a query predicate that contains one alternative that is an index union:
select * from table where (c1 <Comparison operator> value1 OR c1 <Comparison operator> value2) and c2 <Comparison operator> value3) 
In this scenario, the query optimizer may incorrectly estimate the cardinality as lower than the actual cardinality. When this problem occurs, the estimated cost of the query also becomes lower than the actual cost. When the estimated cost of the query is lower than the actual cost, the SQL Server 2005 query optimizer may use this query instead of a more efficient query.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because of a bug in the SQL Server index strategy code.
