A second way that you can contribute to Microsoft Test Lab Guides (TLGs) is to publish a test lab extension article in the TechNet Wiki. A test lab extension describes how to configure additional functionality or advanced or uncommon configurations based on a modular TLG. The TLG extension article includes instructions to do the following:
For example, the DirectAccess test lab configured with the Test Lab Guide: Demonstrate DirectAccess uses the DirectAccess Setup wizard to configure full intranet access and then demonstrates DirectAccess connectivity using 6to4, Teredo, and then IP-HTTPS across the Internet subnet. Using the resulting DirectAccess test lab configuration, I published the following test lab extensions:
In this extension, I run the DirectAccess Setup Wizard again for selected server access and demonstrate the addition of an end-to-end IPsec session between CLIENT1 and APP1.
In this extension, I demonstrate the lack of remote management when no user has logged onto CLIENT1. I then run the DirectAccess Setup Wizard again, specifying APP1 as a management server, then demonstrate how APP1 can now manage CLIENT1 remotely, even without a user logon.
In both cases, I am demonstrating additional functionality with DirectAccess that is not present in the DirectAccess test lab as specified by the Test Lab Guide: Demonstrate DirectAccess document.
The process for publishing your own test lab extension is the following:
