Well, I've been banging my head aginst this all day, so I
figure I might as well post something here in the hope
that someone may have a solution for me.

RRAS is failing to start with the folowing error:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: RemoteAccess
Event Category: None
Event ID: 20152
Date: 10/4/2003
Time: 10:44:55 PM
User: N/A
Computer: EARTH
The currently configured authentication provider failed
to load and initialize successfully. The specified module
could not be found.

0000: 7e 00 00 00 ~...

This is a recent occurance. The follow-up error from the
Service Control Manager reads:

The Routing and Remote Access service terminated with
service-specific error 126.

The following is the output of my IASSDO.LOG trace --

[1148] 22:44:55:671: Service SDO is starting service: 1...

I have my authentication provider set to 'Windows
Authentication' in my Routing and Remote Access
properties for my server.

This is a recent problem. Not sure what triggered it. All
that has occured since it was working was the instal of
QuickBooks pro, SQL 2000 Server (and SP3), and the
install of some automatic updates (post W2K SP4) that
downloaded today.

Any help would be greatly appriciated!

It almost sounds like the IAS service can't access the DC to get the data it
needs to load. Have you un-installed and then re-installed IAS?

BTW do you really need IAS? You would only use that for additional
authentication. If you are just using RRAS, then the default Windows
Authentication is a great choice.

Worse comes to worse, uninstall IAS, then disable and re-configure rras.
Doing that will restore the config and should get you on your way. :)
