Command line netsh ipsec static returns error 05073

We have a group of servers running Windows 2003 and now have a new 2008 box.  I have some scripts that create some entries that seem to not want to work on 2008 despite what I read that is should.

I have the following:
netsh ipsec static add filterlist name="Open Z39.50 (Incoming)"

I receive the error:
ERR IPsec[05073] : Unable to open Policy Store

I tried to Google for some info but nothing was coming up that made any sense.  I did receive an error earlier that interactive sessions are not allowed on this server.  I've read that starting the Interactive Services Detection service will fix the problem with the interactive issue but I still get the same error.
