Automatic updates and other problems

Well my users got notified that there were downloads available this morning sure enough. Unfortunately, nothing actually got downloaded, all of them had many dropped or abandoned download attempts in the Windows Update log. Looks like I’ll be spending a bunch of time figuring this one out…

Meanwhile, I also had issue with them all dropping communications with the Symantec Corporate Edition A/V server today. Using the information from this article got me to find the correct firewall exceptions but my question is, how did these PC’s communicate, and get definition files fine before today without creating the exceptions? Because they did, they got def files just last week without any problems.

It’s all a big mystery..
