    HIPs Location Aware Group and DirectAccess

    mlmarshall3

      I'll lay out the scenario first:

       

      ePO 4.6.6

      HIPs 8.0.0.2482

      Windows 7 endpoints

      DirectAccess Connectivity Assistant Version 2.0

       

      RAS Server 2012 R2 back end

       

      We were a somewhat successful in setting up LAG with our previous VPN but we are looking through the implementation of DirectAccess and it's not functioning.  We've tried a few things:

       

      First, the IPv6 tunnel adapter has no location settings.

       

      Tunnel adapter IPHTTPSInterface:

       

         Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :

         Description . . . . . . . . . . . : IPHTTPSInterface

         Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-00-00-00-00-00-00-E0

         DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No

         Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes

         IPv6 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : XXXX:XXX:XXX:XXXX:XXXX:XXXX:XXXX:XXXX(Preferred)

         Temporary IPv6 Address. . . . . . :XXXX:XXX:XXX:XXXX:XXXX:XXXX:XXXX:XXXX(Preferred)

         Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : XXXX:XXX:XXX:XXXX:XXXX:XXXX:XXXX:XXXX(Preferred)

         Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :

         NetBIOS over Tcpip. . . . . . . . : Disabled

       

      I've been attempting to work with the implementation engineers on resolving this, however, MS has said that putting location information on this adapter is impossible.  I'm not sure if that's the truth so I'll refrain from commenting.

       

      Next I attempted to build another group that denoted ONLY for virtual adapters, that this should be a part of.  The group won't apply and through the Firesvc.log doesn't recognize it as virtual. 

       

      I guess my questions pertain to people that have experience with both?  Has anyone worked with these and made a functional policy?  Is anyone familiar with using the registry entry location setting?  It seems like the last ditch effort on this only there is no guidance for using it and not having the settings apply to all adapters.  Thanks in advanced.
