Windows Update encountered an unknown error – code 80072ee2

4 Nov

I encountered this one on a newly installed Windows 2012 server (Hyper-V) and it took me a while to figure it out. When you google it you will find different posts about registering dll’s, checking networking configs etc. etc. In my case something was messed up in the registry. So on top of all the posts you will find online make sure to check HKLM\Software\Policies if something is messed up with your Windows Update policies.
