    I am trying to startthe routing and remote access service
    on a windows 2003 server that is also the DC for the
    domain. I am getting the error message "Access was denied
    because the username and/or password was invalid on the
    domain". Any ideas?

  2. Hi,

    I would check the following:

    Under services and Routing and Remote access, check the logon Tab to make
    sure the local system account in being used for logon.
    Open the RRAS snap in under remote access logging and check the path for
    the local log file. Make sure this points to a valid directory and/or
    file.
    If the path exists, check the permissions on the folder.


    Thank you,

    Matthew,

    Thank You for your reply.

    I checked and the logon is via the local system account
    and the directory is c:\winnt\tracing. The permissions for
    system are set to full.

    The problem continues, any other ideas?

  5. Hi Lan,

    From the path, it looks like this is an upgraded server. Look to see if
    the server is listed in the "RAS and IAS Servers" group in AD. If not, add
    the server to this group.

    One other thing to try is disabling RRAS logging (from the RRAS server
    properties in the MMC). Just set to not log and see if the issue continues.

    Thank you,

  6. Hi Lan,

    Both events seem to point to a logfile issue.

    Try moving the path for the logging in RRAS to C:\winnt\system32\logfiles .
    This should be the default location for the logs.

    Thank you,

    Turning off logging seemed to fix the problem.
    I'm not sure that no logging is a good thing.
    Is there a work around for this?

    Thanks

  8. Hi,

    I am not sure if you saw the last post. Did moving the path for the logging
    in RRAS to C:\winnt\system32\logfiles resolve the issue?
