Windows updates fail with error 0x8007f004

Can't get win updates installed. Here is error message from the Event Viewer.

Description:
Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with
error 0x8007f004: Security Update for Windows Server 2003 (KB873333).

Thanks,

I had the same problem with a different error message. I logged on to chat
support and Lavanya corrected the problem. It took a long time but she now
knows how to fix it. If you go to chat support I would try to get her.

Hi
I had exactly the same problem and I just solved it, in AD right click on
your DC properties>Group Policies
Then edit the one you have by default or create a new one, go to:
Computer configuration>Windows Settings>Security Settings>Local
Policies>User rights assignement
Select "Manage auditing and security log" and add the groups or users you
need to update with.
Hope it helps

RE: Windows updates fail with error 0x8007f004

I've done this on my domain controller (server 2003), and when I check my
local Group Policies, it shows correctly, but I still can't get the patch to
run, either through Windows Update (it just fails) or by running it manually
(it tells me I don't have permission).

Help?

Thanks!
Chris

Sorry but what does "AD" stands for and where does "DC" stand for ?

Perhaps look at: Error message when you try to install a hotfix or an update on a Windows
XP computer: "You do not have permission to update Windows XP"
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/951244/
0x8007F004 = STATUS_INSUFFICIENT_PRIVS
