Event ID 30016 — RRAS RIP Enabling

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

A Router Information Protocol (RIP) for IP environment automatically adds and removes routes as networks are added and removed from the network. You need to ensure that each router has RIP version 2 enabled so that the RIP-based route announcements are sent and received by all RIP routers on the network.

Event Details

Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 30016

Version: 6.1
Message: IPRIPv2 could not bind to IP address: %1. Make sure TCP/IP is installed and configured correctly. The data is the error code.


Check TCP/IP settings, add a route to Routing Table Manager, or check memory

Possible resolutions:

  • Check whether there are any communication problems due to incorrect TCP/IP settings. Use ipconfig command in a command prompt (with administrator credentials) to view the TCP/IP configuration information. If TCP/IP configuration information is correct, then use the netstat -a command to show the status of all activity on TCP and UDP ports on the local computer.
  • Use the netsh routing ip add rtmroute command to add a route to the Routing Table Manager (RTM).
  • This computer might be low on memory. For more information, see the "Check memory usage on the server" section.

Check memory usage on the server

To check memory usage on the remote access server:

  1. On the remote access server, click Start, click Run, type taskmgr, and then click OK.
  2. In the Windows Task Manager dialog box, click the Performance tab.
  3. Under Physical Memory, check the remote access server's memory usage.
  4. If necessary, free up available memory by ending non-essential applications or processes.


To perform this procedure, you must have membership in Administrators, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

To verify that the route has been added:

  • Stop and restart the Routing and Remote Access service.
    1. Click Start, click Run, type rrasmgmt.msc, and then press ENTER.
    2. Open Routing and Remote Access.
    3. In the console tree, click Server Status.
    4. In the details pane, right-click a server name, point to All Tasks, and click Restart.
  • View the routing table. In the Routing and Remote Access snap-in, expand IPv4 or IPv6, right-click Static Routes, and then click Show IP Routing Table.
  • Verify that the route has been added.
