Windows update error code: 80072EE2 - Windows server 2008 R2
Posted on 2013-01-08
I'm trying to run the windows update on a virtual server (Vmware Vsphere) running windows server 2008 R2. The server is just used as a file server.
But I keep getting the below error message. I tried temp turning of the windows firewall but this made no difference.
Windows could not search for new updates
An error occured while checking for new updates for
Code 80072EE2 Windows Update encountered an unknown error
Any ideas how to fix this?
