    Windows Patch Deploy Fails - Metabase initialization failed: 0x80040154

      When I run the patch analysis job against my servers and attempt to deploy the patches, some of the patches do not install successfully. The only error I see in the logs is "metabase initialization failed: 0x80040154".

       

      The patches I am trying to deploy are

      MicrosoftFixit50288.msi-MS09-A03-2000000-4 0 43 Q502880 Unknown MS09-A03 Windows Server 2003 R2, Enterprise Edition

      WindowsServer2003-KB961371-x86-ENU.exe-MS09-029-2000000-4 0 43 Q961371 Critical MS09-029 Windows Server 2003 R2, Enterprise Edition

      Other patches seem to apply just fine, and I get no indication of a failure on the deploy job itself (Simulate, Stage, and Commit all show green checks).

       

      Has anybody seen this before?
