I just migrated my client from Server 2003 Enterprise to SBS 2011. I have found that every single workstation has the firewall disabled. The Domain firewall option is greyed out on the workstation saying that this setting is managed by your system administrator.
I went to the server and Opened Group Policy.
I navigated to "Domains - Company.local - MyBusiness - Computers - SBSComputers - Windows SBS Client Computers Windows 7" and edited the GPO There.
The exact GPO I enabled is "Computer Configuration - Policies - Administrative Templates - Network - Network Connections - Domain Profile - Windows Firewall: Protect all Network Connections"
I ensured that the link was both enabled and enforced but the workstation firewalls remain off.
How do I enable the Domain firewall?
