  • SBS SP1 Taking Ages to Install - Is it stuck?

    Hi all,

    I have followed the article for applying all the SP1's to an SBS Server.

    I am on the final SP - the SBS one and it has been going about an hour and a half.

    The blue status has looped round 5 times so far, so you think it is about to finish but then starts again.

    In the event log I can see the WinHTTP Web Proxy Auto-Discovery stopping and starting about every 15mins and I am not sure if this is related.

    What is my best course of action? Sit it out for a while? Reboot the server? Force it to stop the update? I am concerned anything like a reboot might trash the server!!

    Anyone seen this before or offer some sound advice?

    Thanks in advance.

    Does it say "Will complete in 13 mins" or such like? If so, then sit it out!

    If not, then sit it out as long as you can, and be prepared for the worst.
    You did have a full backup before you started and a Disaster Recovery plan, didn't you?
