Error installing SQL Server 2008 R2 CU3 update failed

    Question

  • Hi,

      My client has a SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2, 2 nodes cluster. I'm tring to apply a SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2 CU3 but it failed.  Before installation, i moved all my DB instances to active another node, During the installtion, it is saying WmiPrvse is using one of the file, so i stop the WMI service, kill the WmiPrvse process but the process just comes back automatically. i went ahead to install CU3 but it failed.

       The log file revealed

    ====

    Microsoft.SqlServer.Configuration.Sco.ScoException: The process cannot access the file 'C:\Windows\system32\perf-MSSQL10_50.MSSQLSERVER-sqlagtctr.dll' because it is being used by another process. ---> System.IO.IOException: The process cannot access the file 'C:\Windows\system32\perf-MSSQL10_50.MSSQLSERVER-sqlagtctr.dll' because it is being used by another process.

    ====

              I can send the full log if required.

             It looks like WMiPrvse is accessing some file thus preventing me from applying the update, please advise.

    Regards
