I am trying to upgrade an Exchange 2010 server to Exchange 2010 SP3, but keep getting stopped when trying to install. When the installer does its checks everything fails stating that the server is pending reboots. I have rebooted the system several times, though this does not work still. I checked Microsoft for info on the error and see no

I would do the service packs in order if you don't have SP1 and SP2.  Also, be sure that there are no pending updates for the server itself.

SP3 requires you to update the AD schema on your domain. Are you logged on to the server with a user account that has AD Schema Admin rights?

Also, since you're running SBS, is your Windows 2008 operating system up to date as well?  Exchange SP3 apparently requires Windows 2008 SP2 or Windows 2008 R2. Depending on what version of SBS you're running, the Windows 2008 OS may need updating.

Take a look at this article:

take a look and see if you have any orphaned values in the registry

A Restart from a Previous Installation is Pending

I would do the service packs in order if you don't have SP1 and SP2.

this is entirely unnecessary and may have the same problem installing that also

That is what I was saying (not the AD schema) but make sure that you have the SP's and all updates on your SERVER not Exchange.

Good catch hypercat on the AD schema.

So to answer - we are logged in with Schema rights, SBS is on SP1 - and the exchange compatibility chart shows it should work on SP1.

The server does not have any reboots pending that I can see so I will also look into the orphaned reg key values here as well and test the installer this evening
