Upgrade to SP1 fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have problems upgrading SCE to SP1. The upgrade process fails during the attempt to update WSUS. The problem is the following:

    I had WSUS 3.0 running on that server before I installed SCE RTM on it. After the installation process, I encountered a problem that the SCE console couldn't connect to the WSUS database as it wasn't running within the SCE SQL instance, but in the Microsoft#SSEE instance which is created during normal WSUS setup. I found a guide here how to move the WSUS database to the SCE SQL instance, so that everything worked fine. I uninstalled the Windows Internal database then because it was no longer needed. But now the upgrade of WSUS insists of connecting to the Microsoft#SSEE instance which is no longer available. Here's the corresponding WSUS upgrade log:

     

    2008-05-21 09:34:35  Success   CustomActions.Dll  Successfully set propery of WSUS admin groups' full names
    2008-05-21 09:34:35  Error     CustomActions.Dll  SetWyukonInstallDirProperty: Failed to open WYUKON registry key: SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MICROSOFT##SSEE\Setup (Error 0x80070002: The system cannot find the file specified.)
    2008-05-21 09:34:35  Error     CustomActions.Dll  SetUnInstallProperties: Failed to set WYUKON install directory (Error 0x80070002: The system cannot find the file specified.)

    I tried creating that registry key and pointing it to the SCE SQL directory, but then I get the folloing error:

    2008-05-21 09:43:34  Error     CustomActions.Dll  SetUnInstallProperties: Failed to set WYUKON install directory (Error 0x80004005: Unknown Error)

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • I could fix it myself, under HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Update Services\Server\Setup I changed the value for the "wYukonInstalled" key from 1 to 0 and the updater didn't look for the Windows Internal Database anymore.
