Configure Remediation Server Groups

Updated: February 29, 2012

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2

Remediation server groups are used to specify servers that are available to noncompliant NAP clients for the purpose of remediating their health state to comply with health requirements. The type of remediation servers that are required depend on your health requirements and network access methods. After you create a remediation server group, you must add this group to a network policy for noncompliant computers.

noteNote
Not all NAP enforcement methods use remediation server groups configured in the Network Policy Server (NPS) console to provide access to remediation servers on the restricted network. For more information, see Remediation Server Groups.

Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at Local and Domain Default Groups (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=83477).

PowerShell Logo This topic includes sample Windows PowerShell cmdlets that you can use to automate some of the procedures described. For more information, see How to Run a Windows PowerShell Cmdlet.

  1. On the NAP health policy server, click Start, click Run, type nps.msc, and then press Enter.

  2. In the Network Policy Server console tree, open Network Access Protection\Remediation Server Groups.

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

  4. In the New Remediation Server Group dialog box, under Group Name, type a friendly name for the new remediation server group.

  5. Click Add, and in Add New Server, under Friendly name, type a friendly name for the remediation server. You can also leave Friendly name blank, if you prefer.

  6. Under IP address or DNS name, type the IP address or domain name of the remediation server. To verify DNS resolution of the domain name, click Resolve, click OK, and then verify that the remediation server has been added to the list under Remediation Servers.

  7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 until all remediation servers have been added to the group, and then click OK.
