IPsec Policy Agent Service Runtime

Updated: December 16, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

The IPsec Policy Agent Service applies IPsec policy and rule changes to the current operating state of the IPsec filtering software.

Note:   The IPsec Policy Agent service provides compatibility with Internet Protocol security (IPsec) policies created by using Group Policy editing tools on computers that are running earlier versions of Windows. New deployments of Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 should not use the policies supported by the IPsec Policy Agent service since those policies support only a subset of the features supported by Windows Firewall with Advanced Security. Instead, new deployments should use policies created by using Windows Firewall with Advanced Security to take full advantage of the additional security and features.

When appropriate auditing events are enabled (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=92666), Windows reports when the service cannot perform its required tasks, such as properly processing filters, or cannot protect traffic sent or received by one or more of the network adapters attached to the computer.

Microsoft-Windows-Security-Auditing

IPsec Services failed to get the complete list of network interfaces on the computer. This poses a potential security risk because some of the network interfaces may not get the protection provided by the applied IPsec filters. Use the IP Security Monitor snap-in to diagnose the problem.

IPsec Services failed to process some IPsec filters on a plug-and-play event for network interfaces.
