Default Windows Update on Drew Laptops

I have noticed that since the blackout on campus my laptop as well as several of my friends laptops are not able to contact the server for updates. To my knowledge there is no issue with windows update itself I am assuming that this problem may have been caused by something during the blackout since Drew manages the updates we receive on our laptops. I cannot reproduce this problem on any of my windows machines other than my drew laptop so I definitely think it is local to drew servers. The error code we have been receiving is 80072ee2 . With a patch Tuesday coming I think this is a problem that should be addressed quickly.

Default It should be fixed

For some reason, when the update server restarted, the Window Firewall came on and was blocking the web server ports. I've seen it happen a few other times with Windows Server 2003 R2 based systems.

I figured it was something like that. It does look like it has been fixed now. I just wanted to make sure that you were aware of the problem. Thanks for the help.
