Windows Server R2 64-Bit Service Pack 2

    Question

  • Hi there.

    I hope someone can help. I've got two Windows 2008 R2 64-Bit servers running. Both are fairly new, one is a DC with DNS on and the other runs SQL 2008.

    Today I installed Window 2008 Server Service Pack 2 to the server with SQL on which went fine. At the same time I had about 7 PCs in the office connecting to the updates site and installing any critical updates fine.

    However, when I go to install SP2 on the other 2008 server, I get the message "This service pack does not apply to the version of Windows running on this computer". And when I go to run the auto updater program from Control Panel, I get now on both servers (this one and the one running SQL) error 8024402C.

    Given that obviously all the settings were fine as I have installed updates on both servers this way very recently, web access is fine, other PCs on the network are updating fine, I am at a loss as to what to try to get this working. I hate having machines that do not work properly on something as critical as this.

    Any help would be very gratefully recieved.

    Many thanks

    Bob

  • The SP2 service pack only applies to Windows Server 2008, it does not apply to the Windows Server 2008 R2 servers.  They are different operating systems.

  • For the 8024402C error resolution, refer to this Microsoft article.

    Otherwise the specified service pack is applied on WS2008 and not WS2008 R2.
