hi experts,

                I am new to windows server 2008. I have installed windows server 2008 and after that i have installed Visual studio 2008 and Sql Server 2008 in the same machine. I want to update all (like service pack,windows updates ....). When i try to update by using windows update I am getting error message (Error(s) found: Code 8024402C). I am also not able to connect to the internet when i am using windows server 2008. So, can you help me how to resolve this issue.

I think the problem may be your firewall. Try turning off the firewall in control panel and see if you can run Windows Updates.

You are not able to connect to the internet from this box?  I'd say fix your connection problem first then try Windows Update again.  If your connection is setup properly, it should work out of the box; no need to disable firewall.

That makes sense. If you can't get to the Internet then you can't run Windows Update.
Missed that line...thanks seth! You may have to provide more information regarding not being able to access the Internet.

Maybe you need to turn of the IE enhanced security??

1. check your proxy settings (if any)
2. check your server 2008 update services\ firewall status
3. check blocked ports\services by your software or hardware (if any) firewall.
4.check dhcp settings , maybe you'll need to insert IP manually .

good luck

Im presuming you have internet connectivity,
try pinging the gateway and dns server and get a response.

If successful, then your firewall is blocking access or windows updates is not correctly configured.
