TMG 2010 (not UAG) with Direct Access, Network Category Resetting to "Domain Network" for all nics RRS feed

  • Question

  • TMG 2010 (not UAG, small operation, server needed to operate as an edge device) with Direct Access

    What can cause Server 2008 to reclassify the "Network Category" of Internet and Perimeter nic's to "Domain Network".  This cripples the underlying Security policies on Windows Firewall needed for Direct Access. The fix is to disable and re-enable the nics but I would prefer to trace the root cause to stop this from happening again.

    The only nic that has any DNS details is the LAN connection but the server still periodically throws a wobbly and forgets it's on the edge.  Luckily the TMG still operates the Firewall rules otherwise we could be in real trouble.

    Any pointers would be welcome, thanks.
