WSUS installation fails during installation of WMSDE

    I've been trying to install WSUS on my Windows 2003 Server for a while now,
    but the install always fails. The log file reports that
    "InstallSQLAgentSecurity failed".

    I have read some posts which state that WSUS should not be run on a Terminal
    Services Server; I use Remote Desktop all the time to administer my server.
    Do I have to get rid of this in order to install WSUS? SUS works fine under
    the same conditions.

    The Server service is also runiing, so that is not the problem.

    If anyone could shed some light on this, i'd be really grateful; i'd really
    like some of the extra functionality of WSUS!

  2. You can still use RDC to administer your server. The caution is concerning
    running WSUS on a Terminal Service /Application/ Server, which is not a
    supported configuration -- and even if it were supported, I would still
    recommend against combining those two functions.

    Are you attempting the installation via an RDC session, or are you
    installing from the server console itself? Also, be sure that the account
    logged on at the server console is a Local Administrator (or Domain
    Administrator) account.

    I have tried installing from the console, with the same result. I am
    installing using the local administrator account. The machine is a domain
    controller, but not the PDC, hence this is also the Domain Admin.

  4. Was IIS installed before.. or after.. the machine was promoted to a DC?

    If before... you should uninstall IIS, and reinstall IIS, and then try WSUS

    If after.... we'll need to look elsewhere.
