Direct Access can't connect via Remote Access Management Console RRS feed

  • Question

  • I think I posted this in the wrong place previously, so I'm posting this again in a more appropriate place.

    I've set up Direct Access in Server 2012 following the guide by Chad Duffey. It all set up ok, with the PKI part set up for Windows 7 clients also, but now that the server has been restarted, I can't access the Remote Access Management Console and Server Manager is telling me it still needs configuring.

    The message for both is the same "Settings for server servername.domain cannot be retrieved. The connection to the specified remote host was refused. Verify that the WS-Management service is running on the remote host and configured to listen for requests on the correct port and HTTP URL."

    WS-Management is running and I can't see anything that jumps out as wrong.

    What have I done wrong here?

    Have you lost access to Active Directory? Try nltest /dsgetdc: to check

    Also, make sure the DirectAccess client GPOs aren't also applying to the DA server in AD ;)

  • P.S. Where are you running the Remote Access Management Console from, a remote machine or local?
