Updated: January 27, 2010

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Essential Business Server, Windows SBS 2003, Windows SBS 2008, Windows Server 2000, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista

This checklist contains procedures for creating a server isolation policy design that is not part of an isolated domain. For the steps required to create an isolated server zone within an isolated domain, see Checklist: Configuring Rules for an Isolated Server Zone.

This parent checklist includes cross-reference links to important concepts about the domain isolation policy design. It also contains links to subordinate checklists that will help you complete the tasks that are required to implement this design.

noteNote
Complete the tasks in this checklist in order. When a reference link takes you to a procedure, return to this topic after you complete the steps in that procedure so that you can proceed with the remaining tasks in this checklist.

The procedures in this section use the Group Policy MMC snap-in interfaces to configure the GPOs, but you can also use the Netsh command-line tool. For more information, see Use Netsh to Configure GPOs.
