Windows 2003 SP2 not offered via update.microsoft.com

I have 1 of 5 servers which is not picking up the SP2 of 2k3 server update.

Checked that the SP2 blocker was never installed on the server (the registry
key doesn't exist) and that the update is not hidden or ignored previously
from the options on the website.

All other servers can pick up this update except this one and i don't know
why...!?

Why not download the network installation and install from that?

Is the server being notified of the all other updates except for SP2 ?

Check the WindowsUpdate.log located in %windir% to see if there are any
pertinent error codes, Edy -

How to read the Windowsupdate.log file

BTW, the SP2 'blocker' expired but, MS has conflicting information on
the *exact* expiration date:

> After Feb. 27, 2008, Windows Update (WU) and Automatic Updates (AU) will ignore the presence of the
> registry setting and will deliver Windows Server 2003 SP2.


Eh ?
