SYMPTOMS

When you try to install a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 service pack or a SQL Server 2005 hotfix, the installation stops unexpectedly. This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:
  • You use SQL Server 2005 in a clustered environment.
  • The SQL Server 2005 cluster contains many nodes.
  • The SQL Server 2005 cluster contains many instances of SQL Server 2005.
When this problem occurs, the installation process does not send some scheduled tasks to the remote nodes. Some instances of SQL Server 2005 are not updated. On the active node, you receive error messages that resemble the following in the Hotfix.log file:

Message 1
<Date> <Time> Task Scheduler: Error, cannot create new scheduled task for product instance target \\<NodeName>
Message 2
<Date> <Time> Task Scheduler: Error, cannot create scheduled task for product instance target \\<NodeName>
Message 3
<Date> <Time> Task Scheduler: Error, cannot save new scheduled task for product instance
Note In these error messages, the placeholder NodeName represents the name of the node that the error affects.

Additionally, when you try to install a SQL Server 2005 hotfix, an access violation occurs on the Hotfix.exe file. A hotfix.dmp file is created in the following folder:
SQLServer\90\Setup Bootstrap\Log\Hotfix
Note In this example, the placeholder SQLServer represents the name of the folder in which SQL Server 2005 is installed.
