I have recently taken receipt of a new exchange 2003 server running on server 2003 sp1. Mail is working fine for XP clients, but the OWA is broken for Vista clients.

So I trawled the M$ KB's and found the update. However, I do not have permission to install the update.

I have tried as Local Administrator, Domain Administrator, Service account with all admin rights (exchange & enterprise) I even used the RUN AS. I still get the same message. It says I do not have permission to install the update.

I also tried to install SP2 for server 2003 and get the same error. I have checked the SECPOL and there is nothing immediately obvious in there, I have also checked it against known issues in the M$ KB's.

What else could be stopping me from installing this hotfix, or SP2?

You may need to be an enterprise administrator and possibly schema admin.

The Service Account is a member of all the admin groups. This is what I can't understand. This should not mean the LOCAL Administrator account can not run the SP though.

All you need for the KB article is the Exchange Full group nested within the local Administrator Group of the server you are trying to update.
