Enable the Network Access Protection Service on Clients

For this whole Network Policy Server scenario to function, you need to enable the Network Access Protection service on clients. This is accomplished in the client’s Control Panel. Let’s look at how you would enable Network Access Protection on a Windows Vista client.

By the Way

A user needs to be a member of the Domain Admins group to enable the Network Access Protection service on a domain client. You can also use Group Policy to enable the service.

Open the Control Panel (Start, Control Panel) and then click the System and Maintenance group. Scroll down and select Administrative Tools. In the Administrative Tools window, double-click the Services shortcut.

In the Services list (see Figure 11.22), double-click the Network Access Protection Agent. The Network Access Protection Agent Properties dialog box opens. Click the Startup Type drop-down list and change the setting from Manual to Automatic. Then click OK (you can close the various Control Panel windows that were opened).

The next time the client computer is started, the operating system settings will be subject to health validators configured on the Network Policy Server. Client computers in violation of the health validators such as the WSHV will need remediation to gain full network access.
