Known Issues

Firewall Known Issues

The following error may occur when using the resource Firewall in configurations on Windows Server 2012 R2 if KB3000850 is not installed. Please ensure this update is installed if this error occurs.

    The cmdlet does not fully support the Inquire action for debug messages.
    Cmdlet operation will continue during the prompt. Select a different action
    preference via -Debug switch or $DebugPreference variable, and try again.

Known Invalid Configuration

  • The exception 'One of the port keywords is invalid' will be thrown if a rule is created with the LocalPort set to PlayToDiscovery and the Protocol is not set to UDP. This is not an unexpected error, but because the New-NetFirewallRule documentation is incorrect.
