Windows Server Critical Update somehow enabled firewall/stopped remote access....?
Posted on 2007-10-19
I am the IT Manager at our business and have about 8 servers (All Windows 2003). Over the past week, I installed all the Microsoft critical/security updates via Windows update. Once that was done, I immediately got calls that people couldn't connect to the file server.....I couldn't Remote Desktop into them, etc...Upon inspection, I noticed that the Windows Firewall had somehow been switched to "on" and that Remote Desktop had been disabled. As soon as I changed that, everything was back to normal......Anyone know what update causes this? That could really screw some people up!
