I have MSSQL 2012 standard Edition SP3 installed on windows server 2008 R2 data center sp1.
I applied the latest SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 4 (SP4) which was released just last week but when I run @@version I get the following:
Microsoft SQL Server 2012 (SP3-CU4) (KB3165264) - 11.0.6540.0 (Intel X86) Jun 23 2016 17:45:16 Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation Standard Edition on Windows NT 6.1 (Build 7601: ) (WOW64) (Hypervisor)
Is there an explanation as to why the version number did not change after applying the SP4. ? Shouldn't the version number be updated to 11.00.7001? Any insight into this issue would be highly appreciated. Thanks!.
