DirectAccess & Meraki VPN Issues

We have Microsoft DA deployed to our clients computers (Windows 10) and it's running on Server 2012R2.  DA works great, but when a user goes to a remote site that is using a Meraki firewall with VPN back to our main office issues start to happen.

DA seems to be trying to connect (stuck in Connecting state), but it shouldn't be as the VPN has all the access back to the office.
I can ping an IP address back to our office and it works, but DNS is failing (Netbios and FQDN Fail).  I can't RDP to IP address or even web browse to a server back on our LAN.

If I grab a computer without DA setup the Meraki VPN works perfect, so its something with DA causing an issue.

Any ideas?  DA works perfect externally it's just at our remote sites with VPN that have issues.

Thanks in advance.

I'd recommend starting with Meraki support.  They've resolved most all issues I've ever had.

Sorry forgot to reply back to this.

We ended up having to just create a separate VLAN network for the Meraki VPN.  As soon as we did this it worked properly.

Something with our provider was messing it.  But the new VLAN fixed it up.
