Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Do you have proxy enabled?
Try these links: http://www.walkernews.net/2009/05/14/how-to-fix-windows-update-error-80072efd-in-vista-sp1/
and http://forums.techarena.in/windows-update/748151.htm
You could possibly found them already but still I would give it a try.
And did you restart the server since first problem notice?

Hi MarioQuin,

I was just able to resolve this by doing the following on one of my 2008 boxes:

removing "WindowsUpdate" key from:

HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate

as this contained references to another server on the network (we don't have WSUS setup)

Restarted the Windows Update server after this and the updates started working.

Sorry that should be Windows Update Service, not server - but either would work I guess.
