When attempting to check Direct Access connection status on a Windows 8 client machine with a Get-DaConnectionStatus command you see the following error;
Get-DaConnectionStatus : Network Connectivity Assistant service is stopped or not responding.
OK, so lets go and check the status of that service, if it starts great, but mine did not as you can see.
The Network Connectivity Assistant service terminated with the following service-specific error:
The request is not supported.
Note: This will also happen if you have not configured Remote Access properly on your server, and the client has not got the necessary group policies applied, so make sure that’s discounted first!
In my case the problem was a little more obscure, it seems this will not work on Windows 8 (Professional), to check your version simply run msinfo32;
Windows 8 Professional
Windows 8 Enterprise
Try the same this on a Windows 8 (Enterprise) client and it will run without error.
