Problem

I connected to a server with a local user account (not a user in the domain) which is a part of Administrators group, I tried to install the windows patch and received the following error message.

Solution

  • I went to c:\windows and saw a log by the same name as the patch
  • I opened the log and searched for:  Failed To Enable , I have found the following:  
0.329: Failed To Enable SE_BACKUP_PRIVILEGE
0.329:  Setup encountered an error:  You do not have permission to update Windows Server 2003.
Please contact your system administrator.
0.329: You do not have permission to update Windows Server 2003.
================================================================================
0.329: Failed To Enable SE_RESTORE_PRIVILEGE
0.329:  Setup encountered an error:  You do not have permission to update Windows Server 2003.
Please contact your system administrator.
0.329: You do not have permission to update Windows Server 2003.

  • According to Microsoft’s article : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/888791 , in order to install windows update patch you’ll need the following permissions:   
    • Back up files and directories
    • Restore files and directories
    • Manage auditing and security log
    • Take ownership of files or other objects
    • Shutdown the system
    • Debug programs
  • From your server which you received the error message, go to start > run > gpedit.msc > and press Enter
  • Go to   Computer Configuration >  Windows Settings >  Security Settings > Local Policies > User Rights Assignments
  • Because we received an error in the log on: BACKUP_PRIVILEGE and RESTORE_PRIVILEGE, this means that we don’t have permissions on Back up files and directories and Restore files and directories.
  • If you double clicked the definition and you can’t add your user (it’s grayed out) this means that it comes from the domain . In my case these two definitions came from the domain controller’s group policy. I have changed this definitions back to “Not Defined” on the domain controller. Otherwise add the user manually.
  • Afterwards from the domain controller go to start > run  > cmd > gpupdate /force
  • In order to make sure it has changed in the domain controller go to start > run > rsop.msc  > Computer Configuration >  Windows Settings >  Security Settings > Local Policies > User Rights Assignments
  • After making sure that the definition has changed in the domain controller , go back to your server with the error massage and restart it.

Problem

I created a virtual machine (object) in Hyper-V Manager, and when I tried to start the virtual machine, I received the following error: The virtual machine could not be started because the hypervisor is not running.

Solution

I restated the Hyper-V server , and entered its BIOS. In the BIOS under processor options I have noticed that the Virtualization Technology is disabled.

I enabled that option and afterwards everything was back to normal.
