I have authorised Microsoft SQL2005 Server SP2 in Windows Update Services version 3.0 for a group of SQL2005 servers. When I look at the group in the Windows Update console all the Servers report that they did not install. The error message I get is Error:Download failed.

Why is this?

Just a suggestion.... I'd purge the item from WUS and let it download it again.   That might help...

The servers failed to download the package because it might be corrupt.  Check the version of the SP2 you have authorized in WSUS.  Does your wsus download express version of updates?

To purge, you could unapprove/decline the update and then use the clean up wizzard to delete it.  Then go back and approve the update.
