DirectAccess and Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 5

DirectAccess BugFor anyone testing DirectAccess in Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 5 (TP5), be advised there is a bug in the latest release that is preventing DirectAccess from working. At this time Microsoft is aware of the issue and is working to resolve it.

I’ll post more details when they become available.

Stay tuned!

    Some news have just been posted on the TechNet forums:

    Here is a short update on this issue.

    The DirectAccess failure on Windows Server 2016 TP5 builds was investigated and fixed on Microsoft internal builds. We regret the inconvenience of not being able to exercise the DirectAccess functionality on Windows Server 2016 TP5. The fix will be present in our next release, so DirectAccess will be fully functional.

      Thanks! Any more details on a timeframe? Or in the meantime on the issue itself, maybe a known workaround?
