Best Practices Analyzer for Network Policy and Access Services

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2

In Windows management, best practices are guidelines that are considered the ideal way, under normal circumstances, to configure a server as defined by experts. While best practice violations, even critical ones, are not necessarily problematic, they indicate server configurations that can result in poor performance, poor reliability, unexpected conflicts, increased security risks, or other potential problems.

Topics in this section can help you bring Network Policy and Access Services (NPAS) running on Windows Server® 2008 R2 into compliance with best practices. Content in this section is most valuable to administrators who have completed a Best Practices Analyzer scan of NPAS, and who want information about how to interpret and resolve scan results that identify areas of NPAS that are noncompliant with best practices.

For more information about Best Practices Analyzer and scans, see Best Practices Analyzer.
