The Configure Your Server Wizard cannot finish setting up this server as a remote access/VPN server. A problem occurred during the completion of the Routing and Remote Access Server Setup Wizard. To correct this problem, open the Routing and Remote Access console.

Cause

If the server node for Routing and Remote Access Server has been removed by deletion from the Routing and Remote Access Management Console (Rrasmgmt.msc), later attempts to use the Configure Your Server Wizard to enable or disable Routing and Remote Access Server will result in similar error messages.
