Pretty self-explanatory at this point. Either you are not an admin, or not in a group with access to update the server. Perhaps in a backup role or auditing role instead of a patch / admin role.

Yes, exactly. It is possible, and practical at that to restrict admins to only what they need at the moment.

For example, one company might have:

Client Admin
Domain Admin
Local Admin
Server Admin

Any employee may have access to some those, but rarely or never all. So client and Domain admin is all a technician who fixes PCs would need, and domain only to add / remove PCs from the domain. And though you might have client and domain, if the server is in a different OU or the GP is different you could need server Admin as well.

Hmm, worth a peruse: http://www.eventid.net/display.asp?eventid=20&eventno=5343&source=Windows%20Update%20Agent&phase=1


- Error code 0x8007f076 = Indicates that the system does not have the required service pack for this update. To fix install first the latest service pack for this operating system and then retry the update.

Might also try a good old gpupdate /force from the cmd too.
