Windows SBS Console Updates
Posted on 2011-09-13
I was planning to install the latest roll up for Exchange Server 2007 sp1 (KB981407) on our client's servers (SBS 2008 server, standard edition, 64bit and SP1). I tried to use the windows sbs console updates to do this. After selecting 'deploy the update' i was prompted by a message saying that this update will be deployed over the next 4-24hrs.
After waiting that time, it is still located in the 'Updates in Progress' section. Nothing can be done to it (can't cancel, delete etc.) The update deployment report says that it is downloaded. I have restarted the system a couple of times but the progress goes on. It has been this way for over a week now. Another update (KB2607712) is also stuck in progress and seems to have been deployed automatically as per the settings (which i have since changed to stop automatic deployment).
Is there anything i can do? Looking at the built in windows update it shows that the roll up is available to install. Could installing the update through windows update fix the sbs console update problem? Is there a way to rollback or cancel the update?
