2008 R2 Server reboot after GPO
Posted on 2011-09-22
We recently rolled out a change in our Default Domain policy to disable the Windows Firewall and change the firewall service from "auto start" to "disabled".
An oversight caused the GPO to push the update to some of our 2008 R2 Terminal Servers and one of those servers rebooted after the GPO was applied.
The series of Events in the Event Viewer simply show the GPO settings being applied successfully, and then the typical entries for services starting/stopping due to a reboot.
No other server experienced the issue and we obviously corrected the issue that was pushing the GPO to the servers, but I'm wondering if anyone has ever seen this or anything similar happen between a 2008 R2 server and the Firewall service? (The big cheezes are bound to ask why this happened and I don't have anything)
