I am in the process of building a Windows Server 2003 (as a temporary fix) we are in the process of building a windows server 2008 server in the near future. However, when building the server and installing windows updates, I am unable to connect to the backend servers located at Microsoft.
when selecting 'Windows Update' in the programs list, I then select 'express' and then the server will keep on 'Checking for the latest updates' and it seems to remain at this stage, and can not get any further.
I have tried rebooting the server, checked the internet connection. Checked that the server has full access to the internet and no firewall rules are blocking it the required access and can confirm this is not the case. Depsite all this, I am still experiencing issues.
Has anyone experienced this issue before?
