Something wrong with ias.xml file... RRS feed

  • Question

  • The network policy server service will not start. I have narrowed the problem to the ias.xml file. If I remove it and run "netsh nps reset config" a new ias.xml file is created and the service will start. However, all of the RADIUS clients and policies are no longer there. Is there a way that I can fix the old file so that I don't lose the configuration? Or, is there a way to copy the clients and policies out of the old file into the new one?

  • Thanks for the response. I have already tried that and the problem did not go away. But, I did get it fixed, mostly. The problem turned out to be some bad syntax in one of the network policies. So, when I did the import, I was re-importing the problem. Using XML Notepad, I removed a group of policies from the ias.xml file that one of our technicians had recently setup and the problem went away. Today I will add the policies that I removed one by one until I find the troublemaker. Once I've located it, I will permanently delete that policy and re-create it from scratch.

  • Hi Mike,

    You could export the configuration before you reset,then import it when you finished resetting.
