This is so we can implement the SBS Custom Report Alert we setup for user log on failures.
After figuring out how to create the custom report alert, we copied it into the correct directory and restarted the Windows SBS Manager service.
Pretty soon we were seeing the log on failure in the Windows SBS Console flagged in the Network Essentials Summary under Other Alerts.
But, the log on failures were not our own purposely wrong log on attempts, they were a hiccup in the Exchange 2007 setup ... and there were lots of them!
Every time we ran the .MSP file, we received some sort of funky privileges error:
The installer has insufficient privileges to modify this file: C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\RelNotes.htm.
Change the file permissions to Everyone with Full Control and run the installer again, and another file would hang the setup process up. Well, it is one thing for a simple .HTM file to have this problem, it is another thing altogether to see system files have the problem.
So, given that we are in a bit of a learning curve here, the first thing to do was to search for the error. Nothing ... nadda ... zippo ... zilch ... you get the picture. ;)
When we were initially installing Windows Vista workstations on our SBS 2003 domains, we needed to right click on the IE icon and "Run as Administrator". Well, in SBS 2008 we right click on the Rollup 4.MSP file and we were not offered that option. We needed to find another way to elevate.
To try another tact we did the following and it worked:
- Click on the Start button.
- Type: CMD but do not hit [Enter].
- Right click on the CMD that comes up in the search results and click on Run as Administrator.
- Navigate to the Exchange update directory.
- Type the name of the file including the extension and hit [Enter].
- Follow the setup prompts.
Setup Wizard for Update Rollup 4 for Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (KB952580) Completed
Note that the Rollup did require a reboot.
