Server 2008 R2 routing and remote access causing server to go offline

Last Modified: 2015-11-16

OK here is my set up:

server1 - Server 2008 R2 running as DC & DNS server - Routing and remote access installed and configured as a remote access server only for PPTP VPN only

server2 - Server 2008 R2 running as DC & DNS server - If I add the role Network policy & access services then select remote access only when I enable the role my server goes off line completely until I stop the routing & remote access service.

I have removed the role from server 2 but even with the role removed if I enable routing and remote access service the server goes off line completely. What am I doing wrong here?
