This issue occurs due to the proxy settings in the environment. To resolve this, check the proxy settings using the PowerCLI and set the proxy to “No Proxy”.

To set the proxy setting to No Proxy:

Run this command to find the current proxy settings:

Windows 2008: Windows update doesn’t work behind a proxy

August 25th, 2009 No comments

I just installed a Windows 2008 behind a proxyserver  and i saw that it couldn’t update.

To solve this issue you can do the following:

  • Run the Command Promp as Administrator
  • Type netsh
  • Type winhttp
  • Type import proxy source=ie

Now Windows Update will ask you for a username and password before it wants to check for an update.
