Routing and Remote Access in Windows 2003 loses Accounting Proivider
Posted on 2009-07-05
We are using Routing and Remote Access to allow VPN access into our corporate network.
This works fine for both PPTP and L2TP.
The issue I have is that I want the accounting provider within RRAS to be Windows Accounting.
I go to the Properties of RRAS, Security Tab, and choose Windows Accounting as the accounting provider.
This then works as I expect and get the details that I want within the logs.
The problem is that after a period of time, usually a few days or so, the Accounting Provider reverts back to none, and i lose the logging I want.
Within the Event Viewer the only thing I can see is that RRAS service is occasionally stop and start control. Nothing i know of is doing this deliberately.
Any ideas as to where to check to get the Accounting Provider to stay as Windows Accounting?
