Domain Name Setup 80072efd Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

     

    I have a hard time configuring the Domain Name on WHS.

     

    Every time I try, I get a 80072efd error. I am using the OEM version but I had the same issue using the trial (I tough it was a limitation of the trial).

    I tried to see if it might be due to Internet Explorer / Internet Security Rules but everything seem ok.

    I also turned off the "Windows Firewall" without success.

    Thank you

  • Hello,

     

    I finally been able to setup my domain name. I do not know if it is related but I made two changes on my router.

    - Add DHCP Reservation for the WHS (IP/MAC)

    - Enable Gaming Mode

     

    Anyway, Thank you for your help brubber.

  • 1. If you're trying to do this on the server desktop please try again from a client machine which has the WHS console installed and which has no problems getting windows updates.

    2. If you're already tried doing this on a client machine please try another client machine, if possible without any third party firewalls (or another third party firewall)

    3. If you can not try on another client machine on the client please try; Open command shell (may require elevated rights on vista or win7, right click cmd.exe, then run as administrator). On the prompt type:

    ipconfig /flushdns, then hit enter

    then type:netsh winsock reset, then hit enter

    reboot, then try again.

    4. Reset proxy settings in Internet Explorer and (Live messenger), for how to please search the web.

    5. If all above the above don't solve your problem please try reboot / reset your modem, router and oother network components.
