IPSEC service sets automatically to disabled
Posted on 2005-04-10
I had the IPSEC services disabled on a group of windows 2003 servers with Citrix Metaframe XP FR3. I upgraded Citrix to Presentation Server 3, and it needs IPSEC services to start the main services, IMA. So I set the service to automatic, and I do the upgrade. The problem that I have is that sometimes (I can't find a pattern for it) I receive the following error:
Source: Service Control Manager
User: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
Description: The start type of the IPSEC Services service was changed from auto start to disabled.
So as you can see, the system is disabling the service, and so the IMA service Stops, and so, none of the users can access the server.
If I set the IPSEC service to automatic, and I start the services, or I reboot the server, everything starts working again, until the system account decides its time to disable the service again.
Any idea about this?
