A hotfix that updates the IPSec Policy Agent is available for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP

INTRODUCTION

The IPSec Policy Agent (IPsecsvc.dll) manages Internet Protocol security policy. The IPSec Policy Agent starts the ISAKMP/Oakley (IKE) protocol mechanism. The IPSec Policy Agent also starts the Internet Protocol security driver that is available for Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and for Microsoft Windows XP. The IPSec Policy Agent includes a set of remote procedure call (RPC)-based interfaces. These interfaces are used by internal Windows components.

Microsoft has released a hotfix that corrects the behavior of the IPSec Policy Agent. After you apply this hotfix, the RPC-based interfaces return the correct status code that other Windows components require.
