Recommended Posts

Hi I was wondering if there is a repository for server 2008 r2 updates because windows update gives an error every time thanks.

Hello. I haven’t heard of a repository for Server 2008 R2 updates, but there shouldn’t be any real need for one: It should be possible to get Windows Update to work on that platform. What specific error code is it giving you?

Did your installation media include Service Pack 1? SP1 seems to be all that’s needed to get Windows Update working on Windows 7 these days despite Microsoft’s 2019 SHA-2 Code Signing Support requirement for Windows and WSUS, and I would be surprised if the situation is different for 2008 R2, which is also Windows 6.1.

@Winillya2k any progress with updates? If I was wrong to expect R2 to work like Windows 7, or if you already have R2 SP1 updated to July 2019 (the last of the dual-signed updates), then you may need to manually install updates that add support for SHA-2. In addition to the 2019 link provided above, this is discussed in Windows Update SHA-1 based endpoints discontinued for older Windows devices under How to update Windows devices to SHA-2. Of course updating beyond January 2020 should not be possible without a paid ESU license.

I updated Windows Server 2008 R2 with all updates two or three weeks ago.

This was from SP1 base, mind you. This was at work on a production domain controller.

I had to use the same SHA-2 procedure for Windows 7 and then I was able to download ten years of updates.

Beware that the critical Zerologon patch for R2 is an ESU update, so you'll want to get that one as well, or your entire network is toast.

You probably need to manually install SP1 first. I provided a Catalog link for SP1 in my first reply above. After you install SP1, please try Windows Update to see if it works before installing the SHA-2 updates.

For quick update you can also use KUC update checker : http://windows-update-checker.com/

On 7 for example, only about 40 updates are needed to be up to date (if we use the convenience rollup and ignore those for satisfy WU)

Very helpful.

Sounds good! :) Was SP1 the only update you manually installed? Were you then automatically given the SHA-2 updates, for example KB4474419?

Thanks for answering. That confirms what Dylan Cruz said earlier about R2.
