Installing Exchange management tools on RDS servers, not able to update

Hello Experts,

I have a few Exchange 2010 SP3 servers, and a RDS server. On the RDS server, I have the Exchange Management tools installed to remotely manage the exchange server

The exchange version on the RDS server is Exchange 2010 SP1, and the version on the exchange servers  is Exchange 2010 SP3

The only thing I want to know is how I can update the management tools on the RDS server


I just tried to upgrade from Exchange 2010 SP1 to SP3, and got issues below

Additional note

The Exchange management console version on the RDS server is the Exchange 2010 SP1 and the version on the exchange servers is Exchange 2010 SP3, therefore the final versions are 14.01.0355.002 and 14.03.0123.003


How can I upgrade the EMC on the RDS server without the errors above?
Will Szymkowski

When you are logged into the server open the task manager and see if there are other uses that have mmc consoles if any kind currently open. If they do close them and try again.
