I can manually run the Windows patch manually as myself.  I am a domain admin.  But, if I try to run it as nt authority\system user, it does not work.  Has anyone had this problem before?  I am trying to figure out why my K1000 is not patching.

  • How are you running it as the system user?
  • The K1000 runs all of their patches with the "SYSTEM" user. We tested it on the command line by running one patch manually with the nt authority\system user and it would fail. I ran it as myself and it would work. This is taking the K1000 out of the picture.
  • Can you look up the failure code? It's in the log for the msi install, This should give you the first angle to fix the issue. Most likely the msi runs from a fileshare where SYSTEM (a local account) has no access.
  • Is this on all machines or just one? If just one try doing a WU repair
  • can you also run debug and post the logs?
  • I tried doing the WU repair and it did not find anything to fix.
