Example: Verify that the RRAS Services Are at the Required Service Pack Level

Your organization has purchased some new RRAS management software made by another company. After it is installed, the RRAS services no longer function properly. You are concerned that the software might have replaced some of the critical RRAS files with previous versions. After searching on the Microsoft web site, you find a Rras.ini file for use with SPCheck. To verify that the RRAS files are current, you execute the following command:

spcheck.exe /i rras.ini /r rras.txt

In this example, SPCheck used a .ini file named Rras.ini and created a report named Rras.txt. The following output is an excerpt from Rras.txt:

  C:\WINNT\System32\Rascfg.dll SP0-3
  C:\WINNT\System32\Rasfil32.dll SP0-2
  C:\WINNT\System32\Rasadmin.exe SP0-3
  C:\WINNT\System32\Rassapi.dll SP0-1
  C:\WINNT\System32\Rasphone.exe SP0-2

You can see by this report that if the target system has Service Pack 1 (SP1) installed on it, each file is within the necessary range for the service pack: The target system contains RRAS-related files that are consistent with SP1. This indicates that the issue is not file related, but probably a configuration problem. You can find more tips on interpreting the report's format at the end of each report.
