Event ID 2031 — IPsec Service Initialization

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

The IKE and AuthIP IPsec Keying Modules (IKEEXT) service must be running for Internet Protocol security (IPsec) to provide authentication and encryption services. This service implements the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) and Authenticated Internet Protocol (AuthIP) protocols. These keying modules support the authentication and key exchange features required by Internet Protocol security (IPsec).

When appropriate auditing events are enabled (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=92666), Windows reports successes and failures in starting the service, or when the service stops operating due to a failure.
