Windows Server 2016 VPN - ICS

I've been trying to set-up VPN on my 'windows server 2016' for almost a week now. I am able to add the necessary role (Remote Access - DirectAccess and VPN) but cannot get the configuration part done because windows thinks that I have internet sharing enabled.


And I'm 100% sure that I do not. I've gone through all the settings and made sure that it's disabled.


and then, there's registry for it..

Note: when I set the "configuration flag" on 1, it "thinks" that setup / configuration is done but of course, that's completely useless because .. well, because it isn't configured with my "settings".

There's decent amount of stuff on google, about this issue, but none of it helped with my problem. And this is why I decided to try here and ask for your advice. Thanks in advance!

Does that server have a DC role on it? If yes remove the role then enable and re-disable ICS
