Windows 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 upgrade - Error code: DS_S_SUCCESS (0x0)

I don't know why but I keep receiving this error code no matter what I do.  It would appear the upgrade completes but when I login to the box I get "Installation failed" with the error code "DS_S_SUCCESS (0x0)".  The whole thing doesn't make sense to me as success would be good right?

I have successfully installed SP1 into another Windows 2008 R2 box as well.  So I don't understand why this one would fail.

Anyway, the error code pops up when I use the stand-alone installer for SP1 x64.

After manually resetting Windows Update and then attempting the update via Windows Update it worked.


I guess there is something wrong in the stand-alone installer that may conflict with something else.  The error message I received didn't make sense.  DS_S_SUCCESS = error code?  Doesn't make sense.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
