For some reason Microsoft started forcing Windows 8 users with VLK licences to upgrade to 8.1 through Windows Update. I am not quite sure yet why.
I have a bunch of users on 8.1 and with problems. Most of them I can fix pretty easy but there is the elephant in the room named Junos.
Namely, if you upgrade from 8 to 8.1 without removing Junos first, your VPN is broken forever. I even found a Junos KB entry that basically confirms this
Is there a fix?
I know that Windows 8.1 comes with a built-in Junos VPN client but last time I checked
our Telekom's VPN does not support that (yet?).
Hope you guys know something, this is kind of important.
As you know we had a problem with Junos and Windows 8.0 that was upgrade to Junos 8.1 with the Junos client installed , which lead to an unrepairable Junos installation.
But this seems to be solved with the latest Junos version (5.07), one of our consultants tested this version on a broken Windows 8.1 Junos installation and it seems to repaired the Junos client.
