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

In addition to enabling NAP client settings such as enforcement clients, you can use a NAP client Group Policy object (GPO) to enable required services for NAP. Use the following procedure to configure the NAP Agent service to start automatically. If you are using NAP with 802.1X enforcement in a wired environment, you can also configure the Wired Autoconfig service to start automatically.

Membership in the Domain Admins 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).

Use the following procedure to configure the NAP client service to start automatically on NAP client computers.
