    Hello

    I have a new server machine and a new DVD of WS2008R2. Setup runs OK

    On the Initial Cofiguration Page I click Activate but it cannot, I had to
    activate over the phone. Then I click Download and Install updates but it
    encouters an unkown error 80072F8F

    I have not gotten as far as adding roles or features yet

    Any ideas?

  2. Hello gocat2005,

    Did tou configure the NIC or don't youhave internet access? Please be more
    specific, never had problems to activate to MS. And if you can not update
    it sounds for me a connection problem to the internet, so also describe how
    your network is setup.

    Best regards
