Hi,

we just installed a fresh Windows 2003 Standard Edition and when trying to check for more recent windows updates, the site is reporting an error 0x800C0008 when trying to scan for product updates. The site advises to check the time settings, which look correct.

Do you have an idea on where to look for making this work ? Thanks in advance.

Regards.

Hi What90,

Thanks for the tips, windows update started to work since 'server certificate revocation' was not checked. I noticed that a certificate on my server (NO LIABILITY ACCEPTED) expired April 1st, 2004 ...

Cheers.
