Cannot start Base Filtering Engine on 2008 server joined to 2003 domain

    After initial boot of the server (factory install) the server was joined to
    the 2003 AD domain. Prior to rebooting I noticed that I was unable to make
    any configuration changes to the Firewall i.e. add exceptions.
    Upon rebooting the firewall service was not running and when I tried to
    restart it, received a message saying that one of it's dependant services
    (BFE) was not started.

    Starting the BFE resulted in an error 5: Access is denied. This occurred in
    both local and domain admin accounts.

    Moving the server to a seperate OU that denies all GPOs resulted in the same
    issues as did a gpupdate/reboot.

    Setting BFE to run as the domain admin resulted in error 1297.

    No domain policies are set to enforce.

    Can anyone assist as this seems to be a common issue but the fixes above did
    not resolve it?
