That's because the default SBS Windows Firewall GPO is specific to Windows XP SP2 machines.  If you have a Vista machine on your network you should have updated your SBS to work with Vista (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926505) which would have created a new SBS Windows Vista Policy GPO that controls the Vista firewall among other things... so you don't want to completely disable this policy, you'd have to modify it (after backing it up, of course)

I'm wondering why you are disabling the other one anyhow?

I had previously followed this doc to the letter.

Item 1 is for Vista and Outlook 2007. Item 2 is for OWA and Vista. Item 3 is for the the WMI provider to migrate user profiles using connectcomputer. Item 4 is for SBS Premium using ISA (which I'm not). I don't see anywhere in there anything to do with Vista firewall policy.

Items 1 - 3 have already been installed. 1 and 2 on the server. 3 on the clients.

Did I miss something?

I wasn't suggesting that you didn't follow that document... but rather that you DID.

So, look in your Group Policy Management Console then and let me know if you have a GPO called Small Business Server Windows Vista Policy.
