  • Hi,

    Enabling or disabling remote management in Windows Server 2008 R2

    To help protect servers from unauthorized access, and before administrators can connect to a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2 remotely by using Server Manager, Server Manager remote management must be enabled on the destination computer.

    Before you configure a server for remote management by using Server Manager, you must enable several Group Policy settings that control Windows Firewall exceptions. Follow the steps in To set Group Policy for Server Manager remote management to verify that no Group Policy settings override configuration of the server for remote management.

  • Hi Dewacks
      I need bit more information to understand your issue better.
       Can you tell me what and how you are trying to access on windows server 2003 R2?  Do you have Network Access Protection (NAP) deployment in your network ?

    THanks
