Can't get WSUS installed on Svr 2008 R2
Posted on 2010-05-07
I have a brand new Win Svr 2008 R2 Std. Clean install with all updates. I am trying to turn it into a WSUS server. First, this is the company's first 2008 svr, so I have no experience with this version.
When I add the Role "Windows Server Update Service" the wizard starts.. gets almost all the way done then i get a pop-up "There is a problem with this Windows Installer Package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contract your support personel".
When I hit OK it rolls back. It then creates an error log with the following:
2010-05-07 13:14:09 Error MWUSSetup InstallWsus: MWUS Installation Failed (Error 0x80070643: Fatal error during installation.)
2010-05-07 13:14:09 Error MWUSSetup CInstallDriver::PerformSetup: WSUS installation failed (Error 0x80070643: Fatal error during installation.)
2010-05-07 13:14:09 Error MWUSSetup CSetupDriver::LaunchSetup: Setup failed (Error 0x80070643: Fatal error during installation.)
I haven't a clue.
