Installing Exchange SP2 on SBS 2008

I am trying to instal the tool to install SP2 for Exchange 2007 on SBS 2008.  It wants the Windows Inataller 4;5.  I have downloaded all files listed in the Microsft Site and non of them will install.

The error is that there is "Not enough storage".  I have 16GB free on C: and 120GB free on D:.  The system has 6 GB of RAM.

SBS 2008 is runnig in a HYPER-V (Windows 2008 R2) environment.  I don;t think that has anything to do with it but it is information.

Thanks,

Jonathan Brown

Move the WSUS Db to your larger partition if you have not already done so. That aught to help free things up a bit more.

Where is your Exchange store located?

WSUS and the Exchange DBs/Logs are on D:.  How can Microsoft Installer 4.5 beed more than 16GB of free space?

Also, I did more clean up on C: and now have 21GB free.  

Windows6.0-KB942288-v2-x64.msu should be tohe right package for SBS 2008?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Make sure you right click on the update and Run As Administrator to initiate.

When I right click it, there is no "Run as Administrator" option.  

All 3 of the packages report that "The update does not apply to your system".  

I tried WindowsServer2003-KB942288-v4-x64.exe and it does have the Run as Administrator option but fails with "not enough storage".  I think that is the wrong update anyway.

I checked that out.  There is no new information that I did not already have there.  I guess I have to give the manual process a try,
