We have applied SQL Server 2005 SP3 to our production and non-production environments. We have found no issues for default instances. However, the named instances fail on the database integrity task as the server (local connection) applies two slashes instead of one '<server>\\<instance_name>'. I ran a through dbcc checkdb on all my databases and everything came back without errors. Of course, manage connections shows the instance displayed correctly server\instance_name.
