windows server 2008 windows updates fails with 80072ee2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I can't work out what forum category to usefor this so apologies if it's the wrong one.

    We have a cloud based networked windows server 2008 R2.

    When I run windows updates I am unable to with the reason being given as error 80072ee2.

    The 'get help with this error' link cites adding update.microsoft.com and download.windowsupdate.com to the firewall as something that needs doing but I can view these pages from a browser on the server so presumably this is not necessary.

    I have run the diagnostic tool MS has at http://support.microsoft.com/mats/windows_update/ but that has not worked either.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
