    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

    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
