Unable to get Windows Updates on several 2019 servers but not all of them. They are all on the same network and have the same firewall/Internet access. On the ones not working I see event ID 25 "Windows update failed to check for updates error 0x8024402c. Manual attemtps fail to connect. PS command test-network... resolves find its not a DNS issue.

Is there something else I can check?

    The error 0x8024402C means the proxy server or target server name cannot be resolved.

    Verify the proxy settings on the client, and make sure that they are configured correctly, or you can disable the proxy server and see if this works.

    Best Regards,
