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 and 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 but that has not worked either.

    Any ideas?
