Here you go

sc start MPsSvc
sc config MpsSvc start=auto
MsiExec.exe /X{786A9F7E-CFEC-451F-B3C4-22EB11550FD8}

Open in new window

David, unfortunately this will not work in our case as the firewall is in a "disabled" state in "services.msc"

if I try to run your script here is the error:
The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has n
o enabled devices associated with it.

Open in new window


we need to take the firewall service out of a disabled state and start it with a login script.

thx
then reverse them
sc config MpsSvc start=auto
sc start MPsSvc
MsiExec.exe /X{786A9F7E-CFEC-451F-B3C4-22EB11550FD8}

Open in new window

that doesn't work when the firewall is disabled.

I found a way to do it via powershell:
Set-Service -Name "MpsSvc" -Status running -StartupType automatic

Open in new window


however, I need to find a way to run this via login script, currently I get the error about running scripts.
I can manually run this command, but how can I deploy this via gpo and not run into the remotesigned error?
found a way to do it

powershell -executionpolicy bypass -file \\fs1\deploy\fwenable.ps1
MsiExec.exe /X {786A9F7E-CFEC-451F-B3C4-22EB11550FD8} /q
gpupdate /force

Open in new window


powershell script:
Set-Service -Name "MpsSvc" -Status running -StartupType automatic

Open in new window
