This topic for the IT professional describes the Advanced Security Audit policy setting, Audit Network Policy Server, which determines whether the operating system generates audit events for RADIUS (IAS) and Network Access Protection (NAP) activity on user access requests (Grant, Deny, Discard, Quarantine, Lock, and Unlock).
NAP events can be used to help understand the overall health of the network.
Event volume: Medium to high on servers that are running Network Policy Server (NPS); moderate on other servers or on client computers
Default: Success and failure
If this policy setting is configured, the following events appear on computers running the supported versions of the Windows operating system as designated in the Applies To list at the beginning of this topic, in addition to Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista with Service Pack 2 (SP2), or Windows Vista with Service Pack 1 (SP1).
