IPsec Enforcement Configuration. Updated: February 29, 2012 Applies To: Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Vista The following sections provide a configuration summary for each component in a NAP deployment that uses the IPsec enforcement method.
The NAP health policy server uses the NPS role service with configured health and network policies and SHVs to evaluate client health based on administrator-defined requirements. Based on the results of this evaluation, NPS instructs the HRA server to provide full access to compliant NAP client computers and to restrict access to noncompliant client computers. The administrator must define the following on the NAP health policy server: RADIUS clients: If connection requests are forwarded from HRA to the NAP health policy server, the HRA server must be configured on NPS as a NAP-enabled RADIUS client. The administrator must define the following settings on the NAP health policy server: Network Access Protection Deployment Guide. Updated: February 29, 2012 Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2 Network Access Protection (NAP) is one of the most anticipated features of the Windows Server® 2008 operating system.
NAP is a new platform that allows network administrators to specify levels of network access based on a client’s identity, the groups to which the client belongs, and the degree to which the client complies with corporate governance policy. If a client is not compliant, NAP provides a mechanism for automatically bringing the client into compliance (a process known as remediation) and then dynamically increasing its level of network access. NAP is an extensible platform that provides infrastructure components and an application programming interface (API) for adding components that verify and remediate a computer’s health and enforce various types of network access or communication.

Introducing the first Windows Server 2012 Domain Controller (Part 1 of 2) - Ask Premier Field Engineering (PFE) Platforms.
**Update – Before you introduce that first 2012 DC view our new series on AD upgrades** Greg Jaworski here again to discuss introducing the first Windows Server 2012 Domain Controller. We will discuss things such as extending the schema, enhancements to the Domain Controller promotion process (it is no longer called dcpromo), and things you should be doing to ensure a smooth upgrade and minimal issues. This will be a two part blog post. In the first part we will cover the GUI way of introducing the first Windows Server 2012 Domain Controller. In the second post we will cover the PowerShell way of doing this and also how you can take a look at your environment before introducing that first Windows Server 2012 Domain Controller.
Premier Field Engineering has significant experience in the area of AD upgrades. Using the GUI The first thing you need to do of course is install Windows Server 2012. Hyper-V Quality of Service (QoS) In Windows Server 2008 R2, QoS supports the enforcement of maximum bandwidth. Consider a typical server running Hyper-V in which there are four types of network traffic that share a single 10-gigabit Ethernet network adapter: Traffic between virtual machines and resources on other servers (virtual machine data) Traffic to and from storage (storage) Traffic for live migration of virtual machines between servers running Hyper-V (live migration) Traffic to and from a cluster shared volume (CSV) (cluster heartbeat) If virtual machine data is rate-limited to 3 Gbps, this means the sum of the virtual machine data throughputs cannot exceed 3 Gbps at any time, even if the other network traffic types do not use the remaining 7 Gbps of bandwidth. However, this also means that the other types of traffic can reduce the actual amount of bandwidth that is available for virtual machine data to unacceptable levels, depending on whether or how their maximum bandwidths are defined.
John Howard – Senior Program Manager in the Hyper-V team at Microsoft. Now that the veil of silence has been lifted with the release of Windows Server “8” beta , I’m able to tell you a little more about what I’ve been working on for 5 years now. An inside joke is that it’s a feature with two checkboxes in the UI of Hyper-V Manager, so about 2½ years per checkbox! Well clearly it’s a little more than that! A lot more, actually!! SR-IOV stands for Single-Root Input/Output (I/O) Virtualization. It’s is a standard defined by the PCI Special Interest Group. To keep it at a high level (as in all you probably need to know to use the feature), SR-IOV is a standard which describes how a PCI Express device can be constructed so that it works well with modern virtualization solutions. In the above diagram (I’m using networking for my example, but the same principles apply to storage), the physical device is “owned” by the parent partition.
First, we don’t (generally) need the Hypervisor to be involved in the hot-path for transfer of data. Cheers John. Storage Quality of Service for Hyper-V. Updated: June 24, 2013.

How to Use Resource Metering With PowerShell - Windows Virtualization Team Blog. Hey, it's Lalithra again.
In the last part, we talked about what resource metering is. Now, we’ll get into how to use it with PowerShell. A quick note: if this is your first foray into PowerShell, here are some resources you may find helpful to go through. First, a couple of posts from the Scripting Guy to give you a good overview: An Introduction and PowerShell and Pipelining.
