  • Have you checked any proxy related errors?


    May be you can check X:\sms\bin\i386\00000409\PatchDownloader.exe to check whether the account SMS uses has proper access or not.

  • i would download the updated file manually from weblink (not sure if this cab is still updating) since support to SMS 2003 is stoppped long back and try to copy the cab file in packagesrc folder and update the DP by running the microsoft update tool to sync the updates and show it under updates node.

    can you check the sync logfile from ur sms log files?
