Core Network Guides for Windows Server 2008 R2

Updated: August 5, 2010

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

The Windows Server® 2008 R2 Core Network Guide provides instructions for planning and deploying the components required for a fully functioning network and a new Active Directory® domain in a new forest. In addition, Core Network Companion Guides add flexibility and features to your network.

The following guides are featured on this page:

Using this guide, you can deploy computers configured with the following Windows server components:

  • The Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) server role

  • The Domain Name System (DNS) server role

  • The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server role

  • The Network Policy Server (NPS) role service of the Network Policy and Access Services server role

  • The Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) feature

  • TCP/IP connections on individual servers

This companion guide to the Core Network Guide provides instructions for deploying server certificates with Active Directory Certificate Services (AD CS) and autoenrolling server certificates to computers running Network Policy Server (NPS) and the Routing and Remote Access service (RRAS).

You can use server certificates to allow client computers to authenticate servers running NPS and RRAS when you deploy the following authentication methods for network access authentication:

  • Extensible Authentication Protocol with Transport Layer Security (EAP-TLS). This authentication method also requires the deployment of user and client computer certificates.

  • Protected EAP with TLS (PEAP-TLS). This authentication method also requires the deployment of user and client computer certificates.

  • PEAP with Microsoft Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol version 2 (PEAP-MS-CHAP v2). This authentication method does not require the deployment of user and client computer certificates.

To successfully deploy the technologies in this guide, you must first deploy the technologies in the Windows Server 2008 R2 Core Network Guide.

This companion guide to the Core Network Guide provides instructions for deploying computer and user certificates with Active Directory Certificate Services (AD CS).

To successfully deploy the technologies in this guide, you must first deploy the technologies in the Windows Server 2008 R2 Core Network Guide and in the Core Network Companion Guide: Deploying Server Certificates.

This companion guide to the Core Network Guide provides instructions about how to deploy 802.1X authenticated wireless access with Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol-Microsoft Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol version 2 (PEAP-MS-CHAP v2) password-based client authentication.

To successfully deploy the technologies in this guide, you must first deploy:

  • The Windows Server 2008 R2 Core Network Guide

  • The Windows Server 2008 R2 Core Network Companion Guide: Deploying Server Certificates (or purchase a server certificate from a public CA, such as VeriSign, that client computers already trust)

Available in HTML format in the Windows Server® 2008 and Windows Server® 2008 R2 Technical Library: Core Network Companion Guide: Deploying Password-based 802.1X Authenticated Wireless Access
