Microsoft: Protected EAP (PEAP) option is missing while creating the Wireless Profile

Symptoms

There are multiple symptoms for the issue:

1.       Microsoft: Protected EAP (PEAP) option may be missing while creating the Wireless Profile on a client.

2.       Microsoft: Protected EAP (PEAP) option may go missing once we start file transfer using Window Easy Transfer wizard.

3.       Remote Access Connection Manager does not start

Cause

The default location of the file SymRasMan.dll is %SystemRoot%\System32\rastls.dll. On installing Symantec Antivirus or Symantec Endpoint Protection the default location is then changed and edited in the registry to C:\Program Files\ Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection \SymRasMan.dll. After uninstallation this location is not reversed. The issue occurs because of a problem with registry keys which are not reverted to the defaults or .dll files indicated in registry values do not exist after removing Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0

These 2 registry hives are affected

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RasMan\PPP\EAP\25 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RasMan\PPP\EAP\13

The values of the following keys under EAP are modified from C:\System32\rastls.dll to C:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection \ SymRasMan.dll

·         ConfigUiPath

·         IdentityPath

·         InteractiveUIPath

·         Path

4 new registry keys with their value as C:\Windows\ System32\rastls.dll are created.

·         ConfigUiPathBack

·         IdentityPathBack

·         InteractiveUIPathBack

·         PathBack
