Published Oct 01 2020 12:32 PM 5,293 Views

The 8th cumulative update release for SQL Server 2019 RTM is now available for download at the Microsoft Downloads site. Please note that registration is no longer required to download Cumulative updates.
To learn more about the release or servicing model, please visit:

Starting with SQL Server 2017, we adopted a new modern servicing model. Please refer to our blog for more details on Modern Servicing Model for SQL Server

Note: SQL Server 2019 CU8 contains the fix for the reliability issue that impacted SQL Server 2019 CU7. If you applied SQL Server 2019 CU7, and you are using the database snapshot feature explicitly with the CREATE DATABASE … AS SNAPSHOT OF syntax, please recreate the snapshot after applying CU8.


Note: Both Windows and Linux releases are now available. Because of the short turnaround time to release CU8 after the CU7 recall, at this time only the Windows version of CU8 is available. Linux will follow shortly. This blog post and the KB will be updated when the Linux version is available.
