Creating a trusted server group

To create a trusted server group by using the Windows interface

  1. To open the NAP client configuration console, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click Run, type NAPCLCFG.MSC, and click OK.

  2. In the console tree, double-click Health Registration Settings.

  3. Right-click Trusted Server Groups, and then click New.

  4. In the Group Name page of the New Trusted Server Group wizard, type the name of the new trusted server group, and then click Next.

  5. In the Add Servers page of the New Trusted Server Group wizard, type the URL of an HRA server you want to add to the trusted server group, and then click Add. If your HRA server does not use server verification, then you must clear the Require server verification (https:) for all servers in this group check box before clicking Add.

  6. Repeat step 5 until you had added all of the HRA servers that you want to add to the trusted server group.

  7. Click Next to review the group name and the URLs of trusted servers, and then click Finish.

Additional considerations

  • To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure.
