Windows 7 can't connect to SBS 2008

When I try to connect Windows 7 to a fully patched SBS 2008 server I get

This is the same problem as http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/Windows_Server_2008/Q_24869670.html

That was posted five months ago. I would assume the fix would be incorporated in an update by now. Regardless, I cannot find where to download rollup 3

Hi,

Update the SBS 2008 with Update Rollup 3.

You need to perform Windows Update to install the same.

Refer this:

Hope this helps,
Shree

I would really like to install rollup 3 but I can't find where to download it. The site http://support.microsoft.com/kb/969121 does not have a link to where it can be downloaded

This is not a beta version of Windows 7

Click on Start > R Click on Computer > Properties
At bottom left click on Windows Update
You should see a link at the bottom of all that text that says
"Check online for updates from Microsoft Update"   Click that link
I suspect you'll get Update Rollup 3

This is where to download rollup 3 and it did solve the problem of getting Windows 7 connected

Search 969121
Click Add button and click View Basket link.
In the new page, click Download button.

You'd think it would be an automatic update by now
