Customers often combine separate technologies and products together for a larger solution that provides greater business value. To address the need for content that includes technical information and deployment and troubleshooting guidance for cross-technology and cross-product solutions, the Windows Server Information Experience (WSiX) group has published the DirectAccess with Network Access Protection (NAP) solution as a pilot.
This content provides helpful guidance for using NAP with DirectAccess to verify that DirectAccess client computers meet your system health requirements before allowing them access to the intranet.
This pilot consists of the following topics:
· DirectAccess with NAP Solution Overview
Describes both DirectAccess and NAP and the benefits of their integration in a single solution.
· DirectAccess with NAP Architecture Overview
Describes the infrastructure components of the DirectAccess with NAP solution and how NAP enforcement works for a DirectAccess client on the Internet.
· DirectAccess with NAP Deployment Roadmap
Describes the phases for deploying in the DirectAccess with NAP solution. Each phase includes design requirements, links to deployment checklists, and a deployment requirements checkpoint.
· Advanced Deployment for DirectAccess with NAP
Describes advanced automation and how to use system information streams for operational and business intelligence.
· Test Lab Guides for DirectAccess with NAP
Describes the set of guides to demonstrate the DirectAccess with NAP solution and learn about troubleshooting in a test lab.
· DirectAccess with NAP Troubleshooting Guidance
Describes how to perform basic component isolation troubleshooting for the DirectAccess with NAP solution.
Please take a look. We would love to hear from you about whether this kind of content is useful to you to understand and deploy cross-technology/product solutions.
If you have comments, please leave them in this blog post.
This is of great interest to me, thank you. After our move to Server 2008 R2 I had wanted to look at DirectAccess.
This is great information. Though I am not completely up to speed on NAP and DirectAccess to be able to critique the actual content but that information there is exactly what I've been searching for in all of the product documentation, especially when it comes to cross-product and technology solutions.
