Where they right at the end of the log or before.  If before, they may not apply to your configuration.

I have no way of knowing!
but it was after the update has started and didn't finish
I know that because the other box from other client asked to "restart the server" but on this one it didn't!

I think you are referring to the event log.
it was at the beginning (not on the top 10 but after maybe 10 to 15 logs)

You said "After log back on and there was two updates fail to installed in the event (system) logs."  Were there other updates that completed successfully AFTER the two that failed?

NO. other updates were completed before these two update that didn't process and also displayed - show in the event system logs

Last question.
Can you provide the update numbers that failed?  It may be possible to download them and apply them manually but I first need to determine which ones they are.

Rick,
I've resolved the issue by asked my client to restart the box anyway... (as he didn't want to risk losing any update files)
After the server restarted, the automatic update has indicated that there was 1 update needed to be install and I have done so by running the update and installed the missing update
I still would like to thank you for your continue effort and prompt reply, appreciated.
sincerely,
Sam
