We are going to setup 2008 R2 VPN server in 2008 AD environment.
However, i can not enable Allow Dial-in option in the Remote Access tab of AD user account properties page. Each time i selected it and click OK, it will roll back to NPS options.
Any idea how can i fix it?

Thank you.

Well it seems strange because even if you have the NPS network policies with "Ignore user account dial-in properties" option checked this would not have any effect on the "dial-in" tab selections.
This is happening when you modify the "Dial-In" tab in "Active Directory Users and Computers" console from the "DC console" or using another administrative ways (Powershell scripts or anything else)?...

Thank you for the points (even were not necesary especially when your problem is not solved) but you did a better choice, because NPS can provide more options for VPN access.
