Small business server 2003 sp1 update issue

Posted on 2011-10-26
Last Modified: 2012-05-12

When I run the sp 1 update I get an error:

you must be a member of teh domain admins, schema admins and enterprise admins group

This is when I am logged in as administrator.  This user is a member of all of these groups.

I also tried to log in as another administrator user with a different user name to run the update and it said "you must use the built in administrator account"

Any advice will be appreciated.
