Hi
We've just run the Security Configuration Wizard on our Windows Server 2003 DC's, and now the mmc snap in's no longer connect for DNS and DHCP.  Any ideas on what we need to turn back on?

Hi, can you suggest to connect to a server and then point it to the DC?

Did it turn your firewall on?

Also, did your MMC get updated to version 3.0?

Oh, this is remote.  Try to reinstall the adminpak from the DC.

It did turn the firewall on.  I'm going to run through the SCW again and see if my tech left anything off when he configured it.

unfortunately we're subject to auditors, and they want them on.

You can make exceptions on the FW right?

As long as everything is documented with a purpose then you should be fine.

Found a selection in the SCW that allows the remote DHCP MMC to keep working.  Didn't find one for DNS, but it was definitely a firewall problem--turning off the firewall allowed the DNS MMC to work.  Can't leave the firewall off tho, so finally opted to control DNS through remote desktop to the server.
