DirectAccess - Not Configured RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

    Brief description. I am attempting to implement DirectAccess in a small business and am currently getting a "Direct Access - Not configured" status when running the command netsh dns show state. I have all green check marks on DA server and have even checked the Name Resolution Policy in the GPO that was created to confirm that they were there. Any ideas on why I may be having this issue? Client is running Windows 10, firewall enabled, domain controller is 2008 R2 and all other servers are 2012 R2. Thanks ahead of time for any responses!

  • You're right, missed that point, only Enterprise edition of Windows 10 is DirectAccess capable.

  • Hi,

    According to information you provided, the most common case would be that the client-side GPO is not applicable to your DiretAccess client for some of the following reasons :

    -Computer account not located in the correct OU

    -Computer account not member of the required security group

    -Computer account located in an OU with the block inheritance option enabled

    Here are the most common reasons.
