Cannot access Windows Update or Hotmail (Live ID) from WHS v1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I just noticed that my WHS v1 had a network warning about my homeserver domain name. I went in to refresh and the process failed. I tried to release my domain name, which worked, and then configure another and the process failed on the Windows Live login step (0x80072EFD ).

    From IE on the server, for kicks, I tried to log in to Hotmail but the page cannot be displayed. I can get to login.live.com but when I try to sign in I get the page cannot be displayed. Same goes for Windows update - can get the page and try and look for updates, but end up with error 0x80072EFD which is an Internet connection error.

    As far as fixes, my HOSTS file is clean, I'm not using a proxy server, tried resetting IE settings - all with no joy. There are no issues accessing any other website that I've checked on WHS and other computers on this network can access Hotmail, Windows Update, etc., with no trouble.

    Hopefully someone out there has some suggestions . . . thanks in advance.
