    Problems with MS Download URL?

      Has anyone noticed any changes in the URL for Microsoft downloads? I have been using http://download.microsoft.com for my url in the patch configuration setup and, barring any funny stuff by the network folks at my base here, it has been working until July 7 when it started hanging when I manually executed a download. It times out with some Null message from Java maybe. Even when I have nothing in it for a URL, it still wants to go to the MS site and hangs again while trying to build a patch deploy package. I have had to manuall download all the needed patches and add them to the repository and make sure all the names and Office package swithes were right.

      I have BL on W2K3 with SQL2005.

      Luckily this is a real light patch month, last month I would have had to take a lot of leave....
