If configuration manager 2007 can download security updates for windows server 2012 & 2012R2?

My env. is ConfigMgr 2007 installed on windows server 2008R2, and now, we built two windows server 2012 and 2012R2 servers.

I installed the ConfigMgr client on the windows server 2012, and the status is normal as I check.

Now when I download the security updates, it shows the errors:  The server returned an invalid or unrecognized response

I checked the PatchDownloader.log and it shows the errors as below:

This is the forum for ConfigMgr 2012, but anyhow ..
Have you tried downloading such a file manually for testing purposes?

Yes. I tried ... but it also can not download it...

The website cannot display the webpage it shows.

So you either have to wait or call Microsoft to fix that. No one here has control over the Microsoft backend :)

I installed the patch and restarted the server, but it doesn't work...  The same failed information...

If you also can not download this pack?  But this is the default website to download it, should I modify it or may I?

Download of the cab file works fine for me so you should examine your internet connection. This has nothing to do with ConfigMgr though.

Could you post out the communication ports for me to open the firewall?

I can telnet wsus.ds.download.windowsupdate.com 80 port, it's fine. But it still can not download the pack, is there any other ports?

I guess it's just port 80. Don't you have whatever computer (maybe outside the companies network) to check that?

Yes. I tried from the outside network, it also can not download it.        Note: I am in china :)

There is nothing we can do here in the forums then. You should call Microsoft support to assist you.
