DirectAccess Issues

Hello All:

Not sure if this is the correct Forum in TT to post this issue to, but it seemed like the most relevant. So we have had DirectAccess working in production for over a year now without major issues. This morning, I get in the office with several tickets regarding internal access from our remote employees. After diagnosing a bit, I found that I was also not getting good connectivity to DirectAccess.

Here is the issue: Doing some troubleshooting I found that I am successfully getting an IP6 address through both Teredo and my iphttpsinterface. When looking at Windows Firewall, I can see that there are 5 connection security rules associated to DA, but if I look under Monitoring >> Connection Security Rules, there are only 3 (the two that are missing are the ones that specify Endpoint 1 - Any). Finally, there are no Security Associations listed under Main Mode or Quick Mode.

There are now many users being affected by this, but I am seeing that some users can still connect. I will be opening a ticket with Microsoft, but while I'm waiting for them, any help is appreciated.

RE: DirectAccess Issues

OK, got it resolved. For some reason or another, the Group Policy became corrupt. We just had to reapply the policies and it started working. Thanks,
