Update errors (0x8024402f)

I was getting error 0x80072eef while performing windows update, however, I
have followed article ID 885819 and now get an error 0x8024402f but can't
find any info on this anywhere.

We are using a Windows 2000 Server running ISA Server 2000, anybody got any
ideas ?

This error code translates to ERROR_INTERNET_CANNOT_CONNECT. This could be caused by
firewall software blocking the Windows Update Site. This error may occur when the
client PC tries to resolve a URL for the Windows Update site and is unable to find
the correct IP
address.http://v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.co...IsMu=FalseWhen
searching for available updates on the Update site, you see the 0x80072EE7 error
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=883821You may receive an error message when you
search for available updates on the Windows Update Web site0x80072EE7 error
code

This is very strange, it is definatly something to do with the ISA Server as
if I run an update any boxes in the DMZ (that don't use the ISA Server)
everything works fine.
I've followed the links you copied are nothing is relevant. This has onlt
started happening since the new Windows Update went live.

Not sure if this will be of assistance

No joy either .... we are using win2k workstations, however, I did have a
look but no fix found. It is something on the ISA server is causing the
problems, since the new Windows Update.

Re: Update errors (0x8024402f)

I have found a work around for now. Through the Windows Update, user Admin
Options, Windows Update Catalog and I get an option for the old Windows
Update on the left hand pain ....................... it works, how long this
will last I don't know.
Has the new Updater been tested with the ISA Server 2000 proxy config ? I
have eliminated a problem with AV software (McAfee), Web Filter and firewall
(checkpoint & watchguard), so it still points towards being a problem with
the ISA Server ............... any more ideas ?

Re: Update errors (0x8024402f)

I have now sorted it ...... at last, it was a day of head scratching and hair
pulling but got there in the end. We use an NT Domain on site aswell as a
Netware login and to confuse things a little more we use a seperate Proxy
login for the internet via the ISA server. The username and password are the
same for all accounts, however, the password for the internet proxy account
is different for all users. When I changed the internet proxy password to the
same as the Domain login password everything worked .......... hoorah !!! I
guess the Update checks to see that the proxy login has rights to the local
workstation, or something like that.

Have you looked at this article

You experience problems when you access the Windows Update Version 5 or Version 6 Web
site through a server that is running ISA Server

Re: Update errors (0x8024402f)

I get the same issue. I think that it is more a desktop issue. Try if you can, download IE6 SP1 and reinstall all components. reboot. sign in. try update. success/fail does not matter, reboot again.
As crazy as it sounds. I have successfully made 3 w2k machines connect and update.

0x8024402F

On my system, this error was caused by a setting I had enabled on my Linksys firewall/router to Filter ActiveX controls. The Microsoft updater requires a ActiveX control to scan your system.

Try turning off the setting on the router using the router's admin application and try Windows Update again.

Re: Update errors (0x8024402f)

The error code related to windows update is some sort of connectivity issue that needs to be troubleshooted. So for that verify Internet connectivity and for that make sure that you can successfully access other websites. If you cannot successfully access other websites, your Internet connection may not be working correctly, and you might want to contact your Internet service provider for help.
