We have a Windows 7 Pro that will not connect to MS Updates, since connecting it to a DC. I have added the MS URLs to the Trusted links and also gave the user network ID administrative privileges to the local machine. Still will not connect.

Anything in the event logs, what happens, any errors, information or does it just try for ages.

Also do you have any GPO on the domain which point the windows 7 machine as a local WSUS server ? if so is this set to delivery windows 7 updates ?

I had not changed any GPO options and see nothing relevant to Windows 7 in the interface.

The error is 80072EE2. When you click the link to view details, it refers you to setting the Trusted MS update URLs to add to the Security settings, which I did.

Ive had issues before where a new win7 machine didnt have the root certificates file update requried and my group policy had already told it to look to the internal wsus server that wasnt pushing down this update. Easy enough to rule out by downloading from

The link takes me to MS update and as soon as I click to download, I get errors there too.

Unable to download roosupd.exe

Connection to server was reset.

I ended up changing the local User properties from Local Administrator to Server Admin. It then started getting updates.
