When you use Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Option 252 to automatically configure Microsoft Internet Explorer by using a Wpad.dat file, the DHCP clients may not obtain the configuration script.
This behavior occurs when all the following conditions are true:
This behavior occurs because the VPN Client access option is not enabled in ISA Server. By default, ISA Server controls the Routing and Remote Access service. If the VPN Client access option is not enabled in ISA Server, the Routing and Remote Access service does not start. When the Routing and Remote Access service does not start, the DHCP datagrams are not relayed to the DHCP server.
To resolve this behavior, use one of the following methods:
After you install and then configure the DHCP relay agent on a computer that is running Windows Server 2003 and then install ISA Server, the DHCP relay agent configuration is reset to the default values. You can use the Netsh utility to dump the DHCP relay agent configuration before you install ISA Server. You can then reapply the DHCP relay agent configuration after you finish installing ISA Server.
To dump the DHCP relay agent configuration by using the Netsh utility, type the following command at the command prompt:
netsh routing dump
The following is sample output of this command:
