Hi,

I am running server 2003, and have a windows 7 client connected via vpn.
When i go to the properties of the user account, then the Dial-in Tab and select "Assign a Static IP Address"
I enter the ip address i wish to use, which is in the same subnet as the domain, and i receive an error:
Dial-in profile changes were not saved because: Member not found.

Have you also tried setting a static IP in the Windows 7 client by default in the VPN IPV4 networking options?

Are you assigning through an address range or through DHCP for RRAS?

i have tried both ways, but at the moment i have it configured it to assign from a static address pool within RRAS.
i have no preferred preferences, basically what ever works best.
