12.5 2008R2 64 remote agent is causing server to reboot when backing up Hyper-V

Created: 04 Mar 2010

I believe the agent that installs from my 2003 media server to this 2008R2 server is the 64-bit, SP3 version.

I see there is a hotfix be2213R331998_x64bit_334938.exe that is supposed to address Hyper-V, R2, etc. compatiblity, but when I try to run the patch locally on the 2008 server, it fails.  A dialog box on the screen comes up that says "Upgrade terminated unexpectedly.  Please see installation log for details."

The log text is:
03-04-2010,13:40:16 :  Entering PatchSetup.exe

03-04-2010,13:40:16 :  Command Line: /NAME:Hotfix-331998 /UI:FULL /64BITPFW:

HELP!  I need to be able to back this server up.
