Can't change Windows 10 firewall service settings as descrbed in "Setting up virtual desktops in Horizon 7" PDF

Hi all,

In the  "Setting up virtual desktops in Horizon 7" PDF on page 23 it says to change Window Firewall Service settings to restart after a failure. All of the settings in the Windows Defender Firewall service are greyed out. I tried shutting off User Account Control and rebooting, I tried shutting off real time protection for Windows Defender... no luck. I am logged in as the local administrator and this master image is not joined to the domain so I know it is not an Active Directory group policy over writing it.

When I try changing the service settings using the SC command I get....

[SC] OpenService FAILED 5:

Access is Denied

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Please provide us the complete command you are running to fix the issue and what does SC refer to?
