Documenting the Zones

Updated: January 27, 2010

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2

Generally, the task of determining zone membership is not complex, but it can be time-consuming. Use the information generated during the Designing a Windows Firewall with Advanced Security Strategy section of this guide to determine the zone in which to put each host. You can document this zone placement by adding a Group column to the inventory table shown in the Designing a Windows Firewall with Advanced Security Strategy section. A sample is shown here:
