You Do Not Have Permission To Update Windows Server 2003

Can not patch Windows 2003 R2 server. The error log states "You Do Not Have Permission To Update Windows Server 2003". This is a Production Server. I can not afford to have to rebuild it.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
