  • Fix Windows Server Update Services Error Code 0x80070643

    The following error message may appear on your Windows computer when you try to perform Microsoft Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) setup on it:

    Error 0x80070643: Fatal error during installation.

    In addition to this, if you open the Wsusca.txt file you will find information indicating that the user you are using does not have the required rights to perform the task and therefore the setup cannot complete.


    You can resolve this issue by doing one of the following:

    * Grant your user account System Administrator permissions.
    * Grant a group account in SQL Server 2000 or SQL Server 2005 System Administrator permissions.

    After doing this, you will have to re-run the WSUS Setup process.

    Log on to your system with a user account that has administrative rights to your system and then use one of the following methods:

    Method 1:
    Use the osql utility to Grant System Administrator permissions to a new user or group account in SQL Server 2000 or 2005:

    1. Open Notepad and then copy the text given below onto it:
    EXEC sp_grantlogin '<Server_Name>\<Login_name>' Go EXEC sp_addsrvrolemember '<Server_Name>\<Login_name>', 'sysadmin' Go

    To grant permissions to an existing user or group account, copy the following text:

    EXEC sp_addsrvrolemember '< Server_Name>\<Login_name>', 'sysadmin' Go
    Here, Server_Name represents that name your SQL server instance and Login_name your user or group account.

    2. Save this file with the name GrantPermission.sql in the C drive.

    3. Now, open command prompt, and run the following command:
    osql -E -i C:\GrantPermission.sql .
