KB3210708 - FIX: Cannot install SQL Server R Services during an offline installation of SQL Server 2016 updates

Work anywhere from any device with Microsoft 365

Upgrade to Microsoft 365 to work anywhere with the latest features and updates.

Upgrade now


When you perform an offline installation of Microsoft SQL Server 2016 servicing update to an instance that has the R Services feature installed (no Internet access is available), you're not prompted to accept the Microsoft R licensing agreement, nor are you given the opportunity to specify an offline location of updated R Services CAB files. Therefore, after the reported successful installation of the SQL Server 2016 update, the R Services component has actually not been updated as expected.
