RRAS: At least one network interface should be enabled RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all.  I am strugeling a bit with a setup.  When I run the best practice analyzer I get this error:

    Title:   RRAS: At least one network interface shpuld be enabled on the RRAS server
    Severity:  Error
    Category: Configuration

    All network interfaces on the Routing and Remote Access server are disabled.

    If all network interfaces are disabled, then remote access clients cannot communicate with the RRAS server.

    Enable at least one network interface on the RRAS server.

    I am able to ping out from the computers connected to the LAN interface.  I can allso connect computers on the WAN side using VPN, so everything seams to be working.  So whats the error saying?  Did I do anything wrong?

    Note:  The RRAS is installed on a virtual host running Windows Server 2008 R2.  The host has its own dedicated NIC.

    Any help would be very nice.

  • Hi,


    Thank you for your post here.


    From the description, you have a RRAS server with enabled/dedicated NIC installed as a VM on Windows Server 2008 R2 server. I believe you may safely ignore the error since it seems there are problems in best practice analyzer failing to acknowledge the virtual NIC on the VM.
