Management Pack
The Routing and Remote Access service failed to load or create an interface.
The most common reasons for this error are:
  1. The service attempted an invalid operation, such as creating a dedicated tunnel to an internal interface.
  2. The service could not load the phone book information for the demand-dial interface.
  3. Not enough memory was available on the server.
  4. The client interface is not valid.
Verify the following:
  1. You are attempting to create or load a valid interface.
  2. The phone book information for the demand-dial interface is valid.
  3. The path to the phone book is valid in case of demand dial interface. Check if phonebook file ''router.pbk'' is present at %systemroot%\system32\ras directory.
  4. The SYSTEM account has read/write permissions for the phone book in case of demand-dial interface.
  5. Enough free memory is available on the server.
  6. The client interface is valid.
