Direct Access Server 2012 r2 Settings for server cannot be retrieved. You do Not have permission to access GPO

Posted on 2014-08-26

Direct Access is functional, but the Wizard has failed. We have been upgrading domain controllers, but they are set up just like their predecessors. It displays, "Settings for server <DA servername> cannot be retrieved. You do not have permissions to access GPO <\{GPO Directory}.  With the same account launching the Remote Access Wizard I can open the file share that holds the GPO. In the eventviewer under  Remote Access Management Client Channel the error is "GPO <\{GPO Directory} cannot be loaded. The event id is 10046.

I have verified permissions and they look to be good. The account I am logging in with is a Domain Administrator.  I have logged in with other Domain Administrator accounts

    The problems occured because we were promoting and demoting domain controllers. The ACL's in our perimeter network did not allow connectivity to the new domain controllers. The demoted DC's were still there and reachable from the permiter network which made it more confusing as they still had stale copies of the GPO.
