Hey all -
I have a Windows 2K3 server that I've been trying to patch to current levels but Windows 2K3 SP2 won't install if teh server is running on batteries. ; unfortunately, it isn't. There are no batteries in the server (save for the CMOS battery) only 2 redundant power supplies; nevertheless, the OS (when I go to Control Panel->Power Settings) thinks that the system is running on battery power. This prohibits the installation of the updates. Any ideas?

Server specs:
Dell 2650
2 Dual Core Xeon 2.8 Ghz Proc
