Windows Server 2016 TP5 - Activation and Automatic Updates Failure RRS feed

  • Question

  • i have just installed the Technical Preview 5 and am struggling with both Activation (using key provided in preinstall info) and also updating the server automatically using windows update. 

    Activation gives me errors saying it can't do that right now (error: 0x80072EE2) ive tried both installing from scratch and entering key during install when prompted and also once installed going to activation and changing product key but still it won't activate.

    Updates also giving me errors saying it couldn't connect to update servers, try again later and suggesting i'm not connected to internet, which if I browse the web .. I have no issues so I know i'm connected

    Any advice would be grateful.
