Hi EE,
We updated our win2k advance server with the latest patch from Miscrosoft (KB839645,KB840315,KB841872,KB841873,KB842526). The problem is this server is Cluster (2 server with same problem) and it takes more than 1 hr. to boot, it takes long on "Preparing Network..." then on "Applying Computer setting...", etc. Is there anybody who had this similar problem? What could it caused?.

Thanks.

Have you tried removing the update?  If not remove it and see if this fixes the problem.  I would remove it then reinstall the latest service pack, reboot.. then run the updates again.  Make sure you go through the Windows update site and not use the packaged version.

hi,
already tried this one, even re-install active directory and cluster service but still the same. We are using SUS for patch.

Have you tried installing just the service pack since you reinstalled the patches?  Try copying the Lsasrv.dll from cd and replacing it on your serve if installing the latest service pack doesn't work.  You may have to boot in safe mode.
