SBS 2008 Firewall status in server console

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
Hi, I have a SBS 2008 server newly installed. All client workstations report firewall status ok but the server firewall status is shown as critical, off. When checking the firewall via network and sharing center it is on in all options, domain, private and public. It however keeps showing as off in the console for the domain.

I have switched the firewall off and back on, reset to default and added all rules again. Removed ESET v4 with no difference.

Require any suggestions to rectify this.
