Server 2022 always shows ethernet as a Metered Connection.




anybody seen this behaviour? - i have various server 2022 installs, physical and virtual. Fresh and in-place upgrades, all seem to show the Ethernet connection as 'metered' in GUI. Not a huge issue (despite the slider to change it doing nothing)..BUT if we are building  new 2022 RDS instance then this can impact office installs, updates etc, has anybody seen this or know how to change it?

I have the same issue and it's preventing updates from downloading. If I look in the connection properties the metered connection is toggled off. The registry key also confirms the setting is off.
