  2. Hi Rahul,

    This error can be caused by improper Proxy configuration.
    Can you check your proxy settings?
    Also check your host file to see if there is no static IP address assigned
    to Microsoft update servers.

    Thanks,

    hi,
    thanks for your reply ...
    I have checked ... there is no issue with proxy config ..
    but there is no static IP address assigned to Microsoft update servers
    have I to put ms update server entries in my host file where proxy resides?
    how and why to do this?
