I would like to investigate the possibility of modifying a Windows 2003 R2
Domain Controller (which uses IPSec with PKI authentication) startup so that
the IPSec process starts earlier (i.e. before Secure Channel Setup). If
someone has tried this or can point me to an individual within Microsoft
that might me able to help, much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
