Windows 2008 Server BFE
Posted on 2009-02-10
I have recently set up 4 Hyper-V machines with 2008 Server 32 bit on each. On V1 I have set it up to accept VPNs through RAS.
On some frequencey (usually about once a day) the BFE service stops and sets itself to "Disabled". RAS is dependent on BFE so then my users can't get connected. I can reset the BFE service to "Auto" and start it, and it will work fine for 6 to 48 hours before it gets disabled again.
I don't see any errors in event log relating to BFE or RAS. This box is also an AD server if that makes any difference. I have turned on/off windows firewall because there have been discussions about how it is related to BFE, but that seems to have no effect. I don't think I need BFE specifically, but I DO need RAS.
Any ideas out there?
