    Problem: Cannot download patches from windows update or microsoft update.
    Newly built 2003 R2 Server, is a blade in a Dell Blade chassis.
    No proxy server present.

    Thinking it has something to do with the blade chassis and the embedded
    switch.. but can't seem to narrow it down.

    I can't even download the patches, they fail to download. So I can't
    install them manually. We have over 30 servers, a mix of 2k3, R2 and 2K. No
    other servers seem to have a problem right now.

    any thoughts?

    I had the same issue and was able to resolve it by performing the following:

    1. Open Internet Explorer
    2. Go to Tools > Internet Options
    3. Click on the 'Connections' tab
    4. Click 'LAN settings' button
    5. Ensure 'Automatically detect settings' is unchecked and you have a valid proxy script or server.

    After that it was all good!
