To enforce IPsec rules on NAP client computers, the computers must be made members of the organizational units (OUs) created in Configure OUs for IPsec NAP.
Membership in the local 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 add NAP client computers as members of OUs for use with NAP and the IPsec enforcement method. When a computer is a member of the OU, IPsec policy settings for the OU will be enforced on this computer.
On a domain controller, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Users and Computers.
In the console tree, click the Computers container.
To make a computer a member of the IPsec boundary OU, right-click the computer name, click Move, click IPsec Boundary, and then click OK.
