Updated First Responder Kit and Consultant Toolkit for January 2021

You know how a lot of app release notes say “bug fixes and improvements”? We’re not gonna lie: this one’s all bug fixes. Huge shout out to the community contributors for catching stuff and contributing fixes.

New behavior for SQL Server 2008 & R2 users: sp_BlitzLock has never worked on SQL Server 2008, but starting this month, the installation of sp_BlitzLock simply fails with an error. In this month’s release, one of the checkins uses THROW, which isn’t available on 2008. This also means that if you use the Install-Core-Blitz-No-Query-Store.sql script to do installations, you’re going to get an error.
