I installed a new Virtual Machine running Server 2008 and SQL 2008 on a 2 node Cluster. This was to replace an existing Virtual running the same (which we had issues with so decided to replace). Once I installed SQL on the Primary Node I then
installed SQL Service Pack 1 which installed fine. The next step was to install Cumulative Update 5 (we are using this version as its the only one we have fully tested with all our Databases). However it would not install this Cumulative Update,
the error I got was:
“The patch installer has failed to update the shared features”.
I referenced KB 1216468 but nothing worked that was suggested within this article.
Can anyone please offer some advice on what the problem may be?
