Windows Server 2008 SBS 2008 SP2 won't update Windows Update.

Hello,

I have a problem/question and I hope there is someone who can help me. The problem is Windows Update. When I try to run the Microsoft Windows Update an error pop-up: Code 80072EFD. I really don't have any idea what I can do. When I try to access Microsoft Update through http://download.windowsupdate.com/ , I get the message: 403 - Forbidden: Access is denied. You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied..

I already add the Windows Update sites to secure site in Internet-Options.

Does any one know what I can do?

Kind regards,
Freek Ravesloot

I have found something what maybe causes the problem. When I open de SBS console, the next message occurs: Microsoft.Updateservices.administration, version=3.1.6001.1, Culture=neutral, publickeytoken=31bf3856ad364e35.

When I search on this error I can to a WSUS error. The last update that the server did was KB 2530548 IE9 Update.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Did you Run the System Update Readiness Tool ???

Yes, I did. I execute the program and it starts with installing a hotfix update. And after that it still didn't work. I have already reboot the server.

I just had run the Best Practices Analyzer tool. There was one critical issue and it says that there wasn't DNS Client configured.

I would start there.
