Running Windows Update on a TMG Firewall Fails with Result Code 80072EE2

Recently I have encountered a few instances in which the Windows Update client on a system with Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) 2010 installed is unable to retrieve updates and fails with an error code of 80072EE2.

When this occurs, Malware Inspection and Network Inspection Systems signature updates are received without issue.

To resolve this issue, open an elevated command prompt and enter the following command:

netsh winhttp set proxy localhost:8080

If it is necessary to access HTTP and/or HTTPS web sites or services on your Internal network from the TMG firewall, you will need to configure the proxy bypass list. To learn how, enter the following command:

netsh winhttp set proxy ?

If you need to configure Windows Update on the TMG firewall to work with WSUS, read this blog post on the Forefront TMG product team blog

Active Directory – Remove a Domain Using NTDSUTIL
So say for some reason you want to remove a Domain from Active Directory that no longer exists… how do you do it?

As always with Metadata Cleanups NTDSUTIL is your friend.

To remove the domain you need to remove the following using NTDSUTIL:
1. All Domain Controllers for the domain you want to remove.
2. All Naming Contexts for the Domain you want to remove.

You can then remove the actual Domain itself. Its important to remember when removing the naming contexts that there will be more than one. So for example:
DC=domain,DC=net
DC=DomainDnsZones,DC=domain,DC=net Its the DNS Zone that people tend to forget !!

If you get an error about Leaf Objects you havent removed all the Naming Contexts. You also need to ensure you are connected to the Domain Naming Master to perform the actual Domain Removal.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
Please ensure you are 100% certain you want to do the below, and dont do in a production environment without testing first
Below are some screenshots and bullet points on the end to end process:
With NTDSUTIL all of the commands can be abbreviated as long as they are unique, I have put some in brackets next to the full command.
First of all Connect to the Domain Naming Master

Connect using NTDSUTIL
1. Start up NTDSUTIL from a command prompt
Go into the Metadata Cleanup (M C for short)
2. Metadata Cleanup
Go into connections
3. Connections
Connect to the Domain Naming FSMO holder for your forest
4. Connect to <Server>
