When you attempt open the IPSec (Internet Protocol Security) MMC (Microsoft Management Console) on Windows Server 2003, you receive:
The IPSec Policy storage container could not be opened. The following error occurred: The system cannot find the file specified. (80070002).
This behavior is caused by a corrupted file in the policy store, possibly caused by an improper shutdown while the policy was being written to disk.
To fix this problem:
1. Copy / Paste the following into Notepad.exe:
regedit /s "%TEMP%\IPSec.tmp"
regsvr32 polstore.dll /s
del /q "%TEMP%\IPSec.tmp"
3. Rename the file as IPSecFix.bat.
4. Run or double-click the IPSecFix.bat file.
