Can you ping the server with the name above..
Check your AV. The problem usually comes from your AV blocking the connection.


one of the updates had failed. When I retried that one update, it installed successuflly, but it did not require a restart.  So after I posted this question it occured to me to try restarting the server. Once I did that it worked fine.
