  • Failed Updates

    I ran updates on my 2008 x64 server last night and 8 out of 11 failed. I would like to re-run the update, but can't figure how to. Suggestions?

    Are you using WSUS or MS Update?
    Normally you can reboot the server and go back to START--CONTROL PANEL--WINDOWS UPDATE to try again

      Just MS Update. When I go back in - it only shows 1 new update - but lists 8 as failed. I would like to re-run the 8.

        RUn the 1, then try again -- normally the failed ones retry

          What are the failed codes?
          Are you using WSUS, Windowsupdate site, Microsoftupdates?
          Are the updates in question pre SP2? If so try SP2: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/968849/

            Windows Update.

            The 1 new update that just came thru is Sp2 - so I'm pre-sp2 right now.

              Have you tried downloading SP2 and then run it manually?

              2 2 was 1 2.
