  • can you try to decompress the update package then run it from decompressed location

    to decompress the CU package run

    to install it 

    run from command prompt

    setup.exe /Action=patch

    SQL Server Setup has encountered the following error:

  • Where is the package located? It comes down with Windows Update (Win7).

  • You need to run the repair from the original media source for example if your SQL DVD is in E drive then you need to launch setup.exe from there.

  • Hello   I'm having the same problem. This update came in the new group of windows updates. All updates were successfull except for

    the Security Update for SQL Server 2012 RTM(KB2716442). Error code is 84BE0BCE. The thing is I have SQL Server 2012 installed

    but it is not the RTM version. It is version 11.0.2100.60. I have tried unchecking the update but the check mark continues to come back

    and when I shut down it continues to try and install this update. How can I make it stop?

    Thanks

  • Seems like you don't give permission you could give permission to every one to read the folder or you can specify

  • This is the root cause

    The machine is clustered, but the cluster is not online or cannot be accessed from one of its nodes. To continue determine why the cluster is not online and rerun setup instead of rerunning the rule since the rule can no longer detect a cluster environment correctly.

    I see from the summary log that the installed instances are not clustered, I would suggest the following if the machine is cluster enabled try to see why is the cluster is not online 

    Second if the machine is not clustered below thread suggest that this ruel is being excuted though the machine is not c;ustered due to media corruption, one advice here is to re-download the patch, decompress it to local folder then run setup from local folder

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sqlgetstarted/thread/86d3ca43-287a-4195-bc6f-3752215e09df

    to decompress patch run the following command

    <patch.exe>  /x:"c:\SQLServer2012CU"

    the launch setup from c:\SQLServer2012CU

  • I have decompressed the patch and run setup from C:\SQLServer2012CU The setup fails with

    Not clustered or the cluster service is up and online.

    I do not have the knowledge to try to see why the cluster is not online.

    Do I need to uninstall SQL Server 2012 and re-install ?

  • Would you please check-out below KB article

    A repair operation fails when you repair a stand-alone instance of SQL Server 2008 that is installed on a node of a server cluster


    I see from the summary that you do have SQl Server express 2008 installed.

  • How do you start the cluster service on the node?  What node? 
    Thursday, October 11, 2012 4:18 AM
  • I have gone into Computer Management, selected services and there is no Cluster Service. Should there be?
    Thursday, October 11, 2012 4:50 AM
  • Running this action I have following error:

    The following error occurred:
    The specified directory, "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\", for the INSTA
    LLSHAREDDIR parameter is not valid because this directory is compressed or is in
     a compressed directory. Specify a directory that is not compressed.

    Error result: -2054422498
    Result facility code: 1420
    Result error code: 30

    It is a bit pity that :

    a) error is not displayed always

    b) directoy cannot be compressed - I'm using SQL only for development it is even not running every time so why I cannot compress folder?

  • I have no messages regarding clustering (which I am nor using) or permissions and still have been unable to solve the problem.
    Friday, October 12, 2012 11:20 AM
  • Same issue on my computer as well as 17 other development workstations on our team.

    All running WIndows 7 64 professional with SQL Server 2012 professional.

    Anyone ever figure this out?

  • Sorry for the delay, but I did solve it: placed the SQL Server 2010 DVD, ran the setup, chose repair, and after it finished, I was able to install the patch.

    Hope this works for you!

    RP

  • You need to run the repair from the original media source for example if your SQL DVD is in E drive then you need to launch setup.exe from there.

    Ouch, how do I know for sure from which media source I did install? I have an iso file which I mount using DAEMON and I do not have a record of the drives I used. Meanwhile I am getting the same long error list - as SunnyDhuri reports above - over and over.

    Did try different drives (c:, e:, f:, g:) to no avail.

  • Absolutely un-acceptable that a failed patch requires a repair for SQL Server 2012. 


    Monday, December 31, 2012 4:48 PM
  • Meanwhile I did not try the suggested workaround but SQL Server 2012 SP1 was released and got that installed.

    That works for me as well thanks. A note of warning: For some reason KB2716442 still shows up in Windows Update after SQL Server 2012 SP1 has been installed. In my case installing KB2716442 after SP1 had already been installed had disastrous consequences. Most of the Administrative tools shortcuts and some control panel shortcuts got 'broken' even though they were referencing the correct locations on disk. The only workaround I found viable was to do a system restore.

  • Skip the hassle with mssql setup repair.

    The error states that the installation is not supported on a compressed drive or mssql folder. Turn of compression for the drive or any mssql / system folder and happily apply the mssql updates.
