2003 Routing and Remote Access Broken
Posted on 2014-02-03
I just inherited an infected 2003 server and while I have most issues mitigated, the lingering issue is with Routing and Remote Access. Launching the snap-in yields the following error:
MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap-in might not have been installed correctly.
Name: Routing and Remote Access
The RRAS service starts successfully and the rrasmgmt.msc file exists.
I am also not able to to remove the RRAS from the server as it fails with an error indicating that RRAS is running. But I can't shut it down because I can't access the mgmt console ( and stopping the service doesn't appear to impact the ability to remove the role ).
I also can't run a sfc /scannow as I don't have the 2003 installation media ( its all inherited ).
