I recently took over a server in a school. I was trying to update the server when I noticed the machine couldn't ge to windows update. On firther investigation it won't ping any part of microsoft.com. NSLookup seems to work but it won't ping (Ping request could not find host www.microsoft.com
. Please check the name and try again.) or browse to www.microsoft.com
or obviously windows update.
The setup is that the school gets its broadband through a VPN on a Cisco. There are 2 nics in the server and it's acting as a router to create a separate network on the LANside of the Cisco. I'm seeing some issues in relation Master Browser errors in the logs so I wanted to update the machine to get a line in the sand. Very frustrating. Have tried a lot of things but feel like a need a fresh look.
Any help, please!
