Direct Access 2012 R2 Get. Started Wiz cannot create GPO
Posted on 2014-01-22
I'm having a problem deploying a simple Direct Access installation on a 2012 R2 server, with the Getting Started Wizard. The error reads as follows:
"Configuration settings cannot be retrieved from the DirectAccess server GPO."
This comes after Finalizing configuration settings.
Then it rolls back the configuration.
The funny thing is though, if I copy the PowerShell script, it creates the GPOs just fine. But that may have something to do with the Wizard removing them when rolling back, I take it. When I use the Powershell script, I can't use the Remote Access Management afterwards cause it's missing configuration. It just wants me to re-run the Wizard.
The setup is as follows:
A 2008 Standard server DC with 2008 functional forest level.
A 2012 R2 Standard server
Behind Edge (Single adapter)
I cannot see any problems with DNS or the DC itself. All patches are installed on the 2012 R2 server. I cannot see any problems with prerequisites either. I've tried everything I can think of.
I cannot find a single page that reflects this problem either. There are some that talks about that it cannot receive configuration settings from domain controller (something to do with GPO rights), but none that talks about the DirectAccess server.
Anyone experienced this or knows what the problem may be? If not, how do I properly debug an installation like this? I can't seem to find any verbose logs anywhere.
