Trying to acquiring Windows XP Service Pack 2

Hi all,
I've configured an acquisition file to acquire some Microsoft Service Packs (MSSP-W*).

I've acquired some service packs for Word, WinXP Service Pack 1 and Win2k Service Pack 4.

But I'm not acquiring WinXP Service Pack 2, or Windows 2003 Service Pack 1.

Can anybody explain it?
I'm using patch manager 2.1, everithing seems to be ok...

Thanks and regards,
Susana.

What is the timout value in the patch.cfg file. Try increasing the value significantly to allow more time to download. If the process still fails post the acquire log.

Hi!
there is no error message, simply Patch Manager does not try to download it...

Have you placed the MSSP-WINXP_2.xml in the custom folder and set the acquire bulletins to MSSP-WINXP_2?

Hi Nigel,
I'm out of the office this week, so I cannot check it.

But I think that the XML file is not there, although I have many other XML files.

When should it have been created?
I think I can create it on my own, but if somebody can provide me with one, I'd be thankful.

Thanks and regards

Dont forget to increase the timeout value in the patch.cfg else SP2 wont download ( unless you can download 270MB in under 2 mins) also the install switches if you want a silent install need to be changed
