Hi,

I am currently struggling with upgrading Windows Server to Datacenter on 2 out of 4 HyperV Hosts (in Cluster)

While two hosts worked seamlessly with

DISM /online /Set-Edition:ServerDatacenter /ProductKey: XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX /AcceptEula

the other two fail with this error:

Error: 14081 An error occurred while operating system components were being updated. The upgrade cannot proceed. For more information, review the log file.

Log:


Any idea on why this is failing and how to upgrade? Tried also via GUI - same issue
