Server 2003 Update No Longer Working - BITS won't start - please advise
Posted on 2010-08-25
Well - this has been a topic before but hoping someone can help. One of our older server 2003 (R2 Standard Edition SP2 32-bit) boxes will no longer update - it did as of a month ago but now no joy.
Error is always the same - 0x80246008 - which is related to BITS - a check on BITS and it won't start anymore (POS). It gives server specific error code 2147023533 but can't find any info on this.
check out MSKB article 910337 but it didn't address this specific issue.
This has been a good box over the years just serving as a backup DNS and DHCP - if we can't apply the updates - how risky is that?
Any help much appreciated.
