SYMPTOMS

Internet Protocol security (IPsec) connections cannot be established between a computer that is running IBM Z/OS and a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista.

CAUSE

A computer that is running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista checks the ProtocolID field in the notify payload. The expected values are 1, 2 or 3. However, a computer that is running IBM Z/OS sets the value to 0. Therefore, the computer that is running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista denies the IPsec connection.

Note This check is optional according to the RFC 4306 specification.

RESOLUTION

To fix this problem, install hotfix 968485. The fix removes the optional checking.
