Event ID 2000 — Firewall Service and Driver Initialization

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

The Windows Firewall service (MpsSvc) and its supporting driver must be running to provide the core firewall functionality and to manage the firewall and connection security rules that define how the firewall operates. When appropriate auditing events are enabled (https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=92666), Windows reports successes and failures in starting the required software components, or when the components stop operating due to a failure.

Note: Because the Windows Firewall services applies Windows service hardening rules to standard Windows Networking services, Microsoft does not support stopping the Windows Firewall service. If you do not want to use Windows Firewall, turn the firewall features off without stopping the service.
