2012 RAS Failed to apply IP Security on port.
Posted on 2013-12-24
I am getting many errors in the event log similar to:
Failed to apply IP Security on port VPN0-34 because of error: A certificate could not be found. Connections that use the L2TP protocol over IPSec require the installation of a machine certificate, also known as a computer certificate.. No calls will be accepted to this port.
I look at the Certificate Store for the local machine and there are no certificates. Could this be the problem and how to fix it.
I have a SBS 2003 domain that I am adding 2 Win2012 DCs that will someday replace the 2003. One 2012 server has a couple of certificates in its local store. The other one doesn't and is getting the above messages. Both 2012 servers are fresh; I can remove and start over if this is a serious problem.
