Server 2008 Network Profile

Posted on 2013-12-04
Last Modified: 2013-12-04
Hey guys,

Using Server 2008 Foundation Edition R2 64bit. I set the network profile to Work (Private) and tweak the Windows firewall accordingly for my apps to run. Sometimes after a loss of power and the server auto starts up when power is restored, the network profile switches to Public and blocks all connections. I cant even change the profile to Work (Private) as the blue link is unavailable . I have to restart Windows and then it just auto switches back to Work (Private).

Any ideas?

Wow, this is known issue and this hotfix will fix it?

Just to confirm....this fix will prevent the auto switching to "Public" under certain circumstances, correct?
