I ran through the sp2 install on my W2K3 SQL 2K5 Server and all completed successfully except the Client Tools. What are the ramifications of thes porblem? Here is the error portion of the log:

I extracted the files and reran the specific install file called sqlrun_tools.msp

It works fine now.
Let's assume for a moment that you still have CD 1 on your drive. Put in CD 2 and run the client install from that.
Although MS includes the option to run the client tools install, you will always get a failure when trying to install the tools as the installation files are on disk 2. With that in mind, run the set up for the tools after you have sucessfully installed the DB.
