Tim Radney - Database Professional

Tim Radney - Database Professional by Tim Radney I am a Sr DBA for a top 40 US bank. I live in the south eastern US. I have been working with database since 1999 but only full time for the past three years.

KB2463332 failed to install

This morning I was working on getting all new inherited SQL Servers patched to current levels of service packs when one particular server was failing on patching the database engine itself.  A quick google search revealed articles tips that someone may have deleted the c:\windows\installer contents.  That wasn’t my case.

After reviewing the summary.txt file in the “setup bootstrap” folder I noticed that it was failing because it couldn’t write to \SQLDATA\\MASTER\328C400….  Notice the path, there are two back slashes before MASTER.  Can we say typo?  I corrected that in the default path and reran the SP installer for Database Services only.  Problem was solved.

Not a bad find for 4:30 AM after working all night.
