Can't Install Updates in Server Core 2008

    I'm attempting to setup a Window Server 2008 Server to host virtual
    machines. I'm encountering the issue below in clean install of both
    Enterprise X64 and Enterprise X64 R2.

    The install will go fine and I join the machine to our domain, ping other
    machine to verify network connectivity, but when I try to install an update
    in this KB950050 so I can setup Hyper-V I get the following error

    Installer encountered an error: 0x80070002
    The system cannot find the file specified.

    The only information I could find on this issue was this from Microsoft

    The problem is Server core doesn't have an Automatic Updates service so
    instead I used the Windows Update service instead.

    the command I using is wusa.exe Windows.60-KB950050-x64.msu

    Any idea's?

  2. Hello Cameron,

    Did you check if the update is already installed?

    Also you can configure autmated updates, this one enables it:
    cscript scregedit.wsf /AU 4

    and this disables:
    cscript scregedit.wsf /AU 1

    This one allows you to check the status:
    cscript scregedit.wsf /AU /v

    Best regards
