|This topic describes deployment of DirectAccess in Windows Server 2008 R2. For deployment of DirectAccess in Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG), see the Forefront UAG DirectAccess Deployment Guide (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=179989).|
This checklist includes cross-reference links to important concepts about staging your DirectAccess deployment. Perform these tasks after you have completed lab testing of DirectAccess. For instructions to configure DirectAccess in a test lab, see Test Lab Guide: Demonstrate DirectAccess (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?Linkid=150613).
|Complete the tasks in this checklist in order. When a reference link takes you to a conceptual topic, a procedure, or to another checklist, return to this topic so that you can proceed with the remaining tasks in this checklist.|
Checklist: Staging a DirectAccess deployment
Identify and prioritize goals; decide on an access model; identify pilot computers; document deployment decisions and processes.
Implement a DirectAccess pilot deployment; start with a single DirectAccess server and expand the number of DirectAccess clients until you have fully deployed DirectAccess for the scope of your pilot.
Scale out; implement redundancy as needed; reevaluate goals and assess benefits.
