I encounter an issue during the installation of Service Pack 1 for Windows Server 2008 R2 inside a container where the installer exits with the following error: 0x800f0a12
This scenario is not supported for these two reasons:
- No Microsoft updates, including service packs, can be installed inside containers directly, due to the PVC design. Updates are installed on the physical server only and are propagated to all containers automatically.
Upgrading to Service Pack 1 for Windows Server 2008 R2 is not supported, and it must not be installed either on the node or inside containers. Refer to the following KB article:
10051 Does Parallels Containers 4.6 support Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1?
Not all Windows 2008 R2 SP1 editions and locales are supported by Parallels Virtuozzo Containers for Windows. For more information, refer to this article:
