The NAP health policy server is an essential component of any NAP design. In order for a computer to function as a NAP health policy server, it must be running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 and the Network Policy Server (NPS) service must be installed and configured for NAP health evaluation.
Before you install and configure a NAP health policy server, be sure that you have reviewed the following conceptual topics in the Network Access Protection Design Guide:
NAP Health Policy Servers
Planning the Placement of a NAP Health Policy Server
Capacity Planning for NAP Health Policy Servers
Appendix A: NAP Requirements
After you have reviewed these topics, complete the tasks in Checklist: Deploy a NAP Health Policy Server. Depending on your NAP design, you will be required to configure NAP policies and settings for the type of enforcement methods that you plan to deploy.
